AGL responds to Energy Policy WA's energy legislative reform project

Energy Policy WA’s consultation considers the complexity of WA's energy governance and legislative framework due to regulatory arrangements having in the past been amended on a piecemeal basis and the barriers moving forward of an electricity framework which is no longer meets the challenges of a rapidly evolving energy industry. Whilst AGL supports a holistic review of the legislative and regulatory regime in WA, it appears the Consultation is not only considering a consolidation of these instruments to a centralised regulatory framework with certain enhancements and modifications but is also undertaking energy policy review. We elaborate on this and other issues in our submission.
