Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water
The Australian Energy Market Commission (AEMC) is responsible for developing Australia's energy markets under national electricity and gas laws. The AEMC has two roles in relation to national energy markets - as rule maker and as a provider of advice to Australian Governments on how best to develop energy markets over time. The AEMC actively considers market development when it considers rule change proposals, policy advice and energy market reviews. The AEMC is a statutory authority established by the COAG Energy Council in 2005. Its Commissioners are appointed by Energy Ministers.
