The Australian Energy Regulator has published its Final Revised Stakeholder Engagement Framework.
The revised Framework sets out the principles that will guide the AER’s public engagement with consumers, energy businesses and other stakeholders affected by their activities. It aims to provide a structure that allows stakeholders’ needs and interests to be consistently, transparently and meaningfully considered in the AER’s activities.
The AER has also published their reasoning behind the new version of the Framework, and how they took submissions into account in finalising it. It also explains how they will apply the principles in the Revised Framework to help improve the effectiveness of their engagement.
