The energy industry has become increasingly complex with the introduction of a raft of regulations established via laws, rules, codes and guidelines.
Regulations apply to dealings between all market participants (such as generators, transmission, distributors and retailers) and outline how they must deal with end users across all areas including billing, metering, connection, pricing and dispute resolution.
The number of regulations and their complexity often prevents effective engagement between market participants and end users, as end users are often unaware of certain regulations or do not understand how these regulations apply to their particular circumstances.
