Network Access And Interconnection

The introduction of competition within previously monopolistic network utility markets has sparked an increasingly complex array of regulations relating to pricing and network access.

These regulations are usually well-intentioned, but they are risky. Incorrect network pricing can create perverse incentives that lead to inefficient system use and investment timing and location. For example, electricity transmission pricing regimes that excessively penalise the use of existing assets experiencing spare capacity can inefficiently deter consumption and encourage inefficient by-pass.

We have been a key advisor to policy makers, regulators, governments and businesses on the development of the energy, telecommunications, water, airports and rail regulatory frameworks in Australia.  Our expertise covers designing regulatory instruments, modelling incentives, efficiency benchmarking and cost modelling, financial modelling and cost of capital assessment.
