Our Unique Role
With its broad national focus for the future, AEMO’s objectives are to promote efficient investment in and operation of Australia’s electricity and gas markets for the long-term interests of consumers – with respect to price, quality, safety, reliability and security of energy supply.
We deliver an array of gas and electricity market, operational, planning functions across the energy industry.
AEMO manages both wholesale and retail markets in electricity and gas across eastern and south-eastern Australia.
As a wholesale market operator, AEMO also oversees the vital system operations and security of Australia’s National Electricity Market and Victorian gas transmission network.
In its role as National Transmission Planner, AEMO delivers essential planning advice and forecasting to guide long term investment in Australia’s energy network infrastructure and resource management.
AEMO works in consultation with industry and government to further develop and improve Australia’s gas and electricity markets.
