"Economic Regulation – Facilitating or Hindering Economic Development – in Whose Interest?"

The Economic Regulation Authority (ERA) is the independent economic regulator for Western Australia.

The ERA regulates monopoly aspects of the gas, electricity and rail industries and licenses providers of
gas, electricity and water services. The ERA also inquires into matters referred to it by the State Government.
In addition, the ERA has a range of responsibilities in the retailing of gas and surveillance of the wholesale
electricity market in Western Australia.

The ERA's functions are designed to maintain a competitive, efficient and fair commercial environment,
particularly where businesses operate as natural monopolies, for the benefit of the Western Australian community.
In making its decisions, the ERA strives to ensure consumers receive quality services for a reasonable price.

Lyndon Rowe has been Chairman of the Western Australian Economic Regulation Authority
(ERA) since March 2004. Prior to that, he was Chief Executive of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of WA since 1990.

Lyndon was the recipient of the 1999 Austin Holmes Award awarded by the Economic Society of Australia (WA),
and was awarded the Centenary Medal for service to Australian society and to commerce and industry in 2003.

In addition to his role at the ERA, Lyndon is a Director of Perth Airport.
