Frontier looks at incentives and innovations in regulatory mechanisms

Last week, Frontier (Australia) hosted a series of seminars in Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra and Brisbane aimed at stimulating policy debate on the future of energy network regulation in Australia. The seminars examined how regulators could design incentives to encourage regulated energy networks to become more efficient and provide higher quality services to customers. In particular, the seminars examined recent innovations in incentive use by Ofgem in Great Britain, and considered what lessons from that experience could be drawn for Australia.

The seminars were delivered by a panel of speakers, including Commissioners from the Australian Energy Markets Commission, Board Members from the Australian Energy Regulator, Mike Huggins (Director, Frontier Economics) and senior management from Australian Gas Networks. Over 250 people, including consumer and public interest groups, policy makers, regulators, members of the energy industry and other regulated industries, and academics attended in the four cities.
