Felix Karmel, the recent recipient of the Australia Japan Foundation grant, will be speaking to ANZCCJ Members and other at Mitsubishi Energy Corporation on 12 July. Mr Karmel is here to share his research findings regarding Australia’s energy deregulation experience and what Japan might learn from this. 

Mr Karmel is a Regulatory Analyst for the Essential Services Commission of South Australia working in the field of consumer protection and policy. His work involves developing and defending regulatory positions using an outcomes and risk-based approach for service standards (electricity), cost of equity (for regulatory purposes) and analysis around capital expenditure proposals. His main work has been in the water and energy sectors but he has also had experience in rail access regimes in South Australia. Prior to this Mr Karmel was Economic Analyst for Primary Industries and Regions South Australia. 

Further background:

The Japanese Government began to reform the Japanese electricity market in 2016. And according to Felix Karmel, the driving force for the new energy policy was the Fukushima nuclear incident of 2011. Carmel claims in a recent paper that all three of the objectives set by the Japanese Government have similarities to what Australia has set out to achieve over the last thirty years in energy policy. Come and hear more about where Australia's lessons learned could help Japan in the deregulation of its energy sector. A copy of Felix Carmel's paper entitled Deregulation and Reform of the Electricity Industry in Australia: Lessons for Japan? can be found online here
