The site’s redevelopment delivers on a key component of AEMO’s Corporate Plan, which commits AEMO to delivering a modern digital platform to help unlock new value for consumers, improve data access, transparency, choice and user experience, and enable flexibility and new energy services.
“As our energy system transforms, it’s critical that we innovate our digital platforms to provide an easy-to-use, secure and scalable digital experience for our audiences,” said AEMO’s Chief Digital and Business Transformation Officer, Joe Locandro.
“The launch of the new site is a major milestone in AEMO’s Corporate Plan and will provide our stakeholders with a go-to platform that will act as an independent source of truth for data and insights on Australia’s dynamic energy sector,” said Mr Locandro.
Visitors to the new site will find a newly developed navigation structure that intuitively groups information, improved search and filtering functionality, improved interlinkages between relevant pages, and clear visualisations of key metrics and data.
“We started our website redevelopment journey by consulting extensively with our stakeholders, assessing what information they needed most, and what website features would better support their role in our energy markets,” said Chief External Affairs Officer, Tony Chappel.
“The feedback we gained from these consultations has been critical to delivering a fit-for-purpose product that adds real value. We will continue to engage with our stakeholders beyond the website’s go-live date and have established feedback channels to ensure we’re continually modifying the website to enhance the user experience,” said Mr Chappel.
The new site will also migrate the energylive.aemo.com.au site to the aemo.com.au location. Users can still access Energy Live underneath the ‘news’ tab in the aemo.com.au navigation bar. The Energy Live brand, mobile application and newsletter will be retained, and AEMO will continue to deliver weekly news on the national and international energy sector.
Existing links have been redirected so you will still be able to use any bookmarks you have stored to get the information you need.
To help users understand and navigate through the site’s new layout and features, AEMO has developed a short YouTube tutorial that runs through the site’s navigation structure, key improvements and new features. You can watch the video here.
AEMO has also organised an additional resource in our Support Hub to answer questions you have on the new site. You can contact our Support Hub via this contact form or by dialling 1300 236 600.
