Review of Competition in the Electricity and Gas Retail Markets

Consultation is now closed

The CER has today published its review of competition in the electricity and gas retail markets.  An in-depth review of the development of competition over time since  full deregulation of the gas and electricity retail markets has been conducted so as to assess the extent to which competition is providing beneficial outcomes for consumers. This review also aligns with the 2015 White Paper on energy policy, published by the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment. Under this paper the CER committed to publish a customer focussed assessment of the development of competition in the electricity and gas retail markets.
The CER has requested feedback on specific findings of this report and will consider the feedback received in developing future policy. Stakeholders are invited to provide feedback to this report through a dedicated online questionnaire at the following link;  Alternatively, responses can be directed to Gina Kelly via
