Forms of Consultation

Consultation with industry, Government and consumer stakeholders will be critical in ensuring the successful delivery of the Energy Transformation Strategy.

The Energy Transformation Taskforce will undertake public consultation processes and hold stakeholder workshops and presentations.

The Taskforce has also established two formal consultation groups.

Transformation Design and Operation Working Group (TDOWG)

The Transformation Design and Operation Working Group was established by the Energy Transformation Implementation Unit in August 2019. This working group provides a forum for stakeholders to offer expert and detailed technical input into the Energy Transformation Strategy work streams, with a particular focus on projects being delivered as part of the Foundation Regulatory Frameworks work stream.

For more information visit Transformation Design and Operation Working Group which includes all meeting minutes and slides.

WEM Reform Implementation Group (WRIG)

The WEM Reform Implementation Group was established by the Energy Transformation Unit in March 2020. It is a forum to consult stakeholders on the implementation of the Foundation Regulatory Frameworks workstream of the Energy Transformation Strategy.

Program Implementation Coordination Group

The Energy Transformation Strategy has a strong focus on implementing changes to existing network and Wholesale Electricity Market arrangements in the South West Interconnected System. It will therefore be critical for the Taskforce to work collaboratively with Western Power and the Australian Energy Market Operator.

A Program Implementation Coordination Group has been established to facilitate the collaborative, coordinated and timely implementation of the Energy Transformation Strategy. The group will focus on work program coordination at a strategic level.

Membership of the Program Implementation Coordination Group includes:

  • the Chair of the Energy Transformation Taskforce;
  • the Program Director of the Energy Transformation Implementation Unit;
  • a senior representative of the Australian Energy Market Operator; and
  • a senior representative of Western Power.

Strategic Consultative Group

The Strategic Consultative Group was established by the former Public Utilities Office of the Department of Treasury in August 2018 to inform its Wholesale Electricity Market reform work program.
