In particular, the project will explore who the various stakeholders and organizations are in each state, what their views and perspectives are, how they will be affected by new initiatives on 1) tariffs and electricity distribution, 2) renewable energy mandates, 3) competition and open access, and 4) demand-side efficiency.
A 2 day introductory workshop was held setting the context of the project and introducing the project convenors and research team.
