We have published our 2015/16 work programme. Our work programme details the projects we intend to progress during the 2015/16 financial year.

The programme comprises:

  1. Key regulatory projects: work that may result in significant new Code amendments or involves significant new market facilitation initiatives. These projects could involve substantial engagement with stakeholders. This includes priority 1 projects listed in our Statement of Performance Expectations (SPE).
  2. Other outputs: includes market service improvement projects, implementation projects, other Code amendments and market facilitation measures (including operational projects to enhance consumer participation), post-implementation reviews, monitoring, information and education initiatives, market services projects, and compliance initiatives. 

Our top priorities for 2015/16 are improving retail competition and enhancing the efficient operation of the electricity industry. We have several projects targeted at improving retail competition, including hedge market improvements, retail data and the What’s My Number campaign. Projects to improve efficiency include the transmission pricing review and initiatives relating to distribution networks.

We remain flexible and responsive in the management of this work programme. We may need to reprioritise work during the year, for example if new projects are required or if new information is available about a specific project. We will review and update this work programme on a regular basis, and will publish summary reports on progress every four months.
