The Independent Market Operator (IMO) is an industry-funded organisation. The IMO's role is to administer, and develop changes to, the Wholesale Electricity Market Rules and Gas Services Information Rules.
The Board, CEO and staff of the Independent Market Operator are deeply saddened by the sudden passing of Matt Zema, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of the Australian Energy Market Operator on Saturday, 23 July 2016.
We extend our deepest sympathies and condolences to Matt’s family and friends, and to all of our colleagues and friends at AEMO.
Matt had a very substantial and distinguished career and made a significant impact on and contribution to the Australian energy sector. He was a highly regarded and respected leader. In particular, the IMO Board wishes to acknowledge Matt’s contribution as CEO of the IMO in October 2015 to oversee the transfer of market functions to AEMO.
On 1 July 2016, the IMO’s functions to monitor, investigate and enforce compliance by Rule Participants with their respective obligations under the Wholesale Electricity Market Rules and the Gas Services Information Rules were transferred to the Economic Regulation Authority.
Accordingly, compliance enquiries should be directed to the Economic Regulation Authority.
