AEMC residential electricity price trends

The Australian Energy Market Commission (AEMC) has released its annual report on what’s driving costs up and down across the electricity supply chain.

Most Australians can expect to see falling electricity prices over the next 2 years. The pressure is coming off prices because a huge pipeline of new renewable generation is coming into the market, and demand is relatively flat. Across all regions and fuels, policy choices made by governments will determine the shape of the energy system of the future.
