Market and Regulatory Framework Position Paper

The Market and Regulatory Framework Position Paper and supporting technical report from Concept Consulting outlines the policy positions relating to the market and regulatory frameworks that will operate from 1 January 2014 when the transition to full retail competition will commence. It also outlines the process to manage the transition, including regulatory and market arrangements and the introduction of private sector retailers into Tasmania via the sale of Aurora’s retail customer base. It does not detail the structural changes being made to the Government’s portfolio or electricity businesses that also form part of the Government’s reforms.

In parallel with the release of this Position Paper, exposure drafts of the proposed legislative amendments to implement the positions proposed was also released, and can be found under the Legislation section.
