Our electricity network regulation is in trouble

Stephen King writes in The Conversation (8.3.16) about problems with the regulation of state-owned electricity networks.

‘Want to check if Australia’s utility regulation is working? To highlight the problems, you need look no further than the recent decisions by the Australian Competition Tribunal on four electricity network businesses.

‘Don’t get me wrong. These are fine legal decisions. But they also highlight the underlying failure of Australia’s utility regulation.’
