Improving the financial transmission rights market

  • Transmission
  • Wholesale

In 2022, the Electricity Authority consulted on an Issues paper about whether market settings are fit-for-purpose in the financial transmission rights (FTR) market.

The issues ranged from the FTR market’s impact on retail and wholesale competition, participants’ investment decisions, fair pricing, market funding design, regulation and barriers to entry and participation.

We received 17 submissions that can be read on our consultation page.

Having reviewed submissions and undertaken further analysis, we will publish a decision paper with our findings on Tuesday 6 June 2023.
