Recent regulatory developments
Energy Matters 2018
On 25 September, Evoenergy hosted “Energy Matters 2018” a yearly event that brings together our major customers to provide industry updates, share ideas and stories.
The key focus this year was to inform about tariff reforms for large customers. Attendees also heard an update on the ACT Government's Climate Change Policy, and what climate change means to Evoenergy. Australian National University, an Evoenergy major customer, presented on what drives their sustainability and resource management initiatives. Everyone took part in a discussion on the proposed changes to Evoenergy's Tariff Structure Statement and how these may impact large energy consumers.
Evoenergy ICT Deep Dive Outcomes
Evoenergy recently revisited consumer conversations about our approach to information and communication technology investment within Evoenergy’s 2019-2024 regulatory proposal. This ‘deep dive’ was conducted over two sessions to allow for a more considered approach to the topic and to better enable Evoenergy to respond to consumer questions.

Evoenergy Electricity Network 2019-24 five-year plan
Every five years, Evoenergy is required to prepare a detailed plan explaining how we will operate and maintain the electricity network to meet the future demand of our customers. This electricity five-year plan is submitted to the Australian Energy Regulator (the Regulator) for review.
Our proposed plan for the 2019/20-2023/24 years was submitted to the Regulator and has been approved for compliance by the AER. You can read our plan here. Further information can be found in our electricity five-year plan or on the AER website.
Power of Choice Reforms and Industry Forum
Power of Choice is a suite of reforms to the National Electricity Rules designed to encourage energy consumers to make more informed choices about how and when they use electricity.
Power of Choice will impact how distribution network businesses, such as Evoenergy, operate and it’s important to us that our local customers and business community understand these changes so that we can work together as the new rules take effect to minimise any negative or unintended impacts of the transition process. We continue to hold various workshops and events and provide relevant information.
Regulator decision on Evoenergy gas network
The Australian Energy Regulator (AER) has released its final Decision on the ACT, Queanbeyan and Bungendore gas distribution network for the next five years (2016-21). A copy of the decision can be found on the Regulator’s website. The outcomes of the Decision take effect from 1 July 2016.
In preparing our submissions to the review process, Evoenergy consulted with the community over many months and in particular had a number of meetings and discussions with the Energy Consumer Reference Council. Input from our consumers contributed significantly to a number of areas within our submission.
We would like to thank the members of the community who contributed to the development of our five year plan for the gas network and will continue to work with our customers and stakeholders as we implement the plan, including our new, more tailored, tariffs. Further information on our plan and associated community consultation activities can be found in the Five Year Plan for Gas.
