Budget and fees
NSW/ACT, QLD, SA and VIC
AEMO has a broad range of functions and each is underpinned by a fee structure developed in consultation with stakeholders and in line with National Gas Rules. The fee structures detail how AEMO will calculate fees and who will be charged.
The current participant fee determination for AEMO’s gas markets is from 1 July 2015 to 30 June 2018. AEMO’s annual budget sets out the amounts that will be charged under these fee structures. The budget provides a view of 2016–17 gas revenue and expenses, and estimates for the following four-year period.
In budgeting for 2016–17, AEMO has continued to apply strong commercial discipline to control costs to reduce the impact of fee increases to market participants.
