In 2013, IPART completed a review of our methodology for determining the weighted average cost of capital (WACC) we use in setting prices for regulated businesses. The main purpose of our review was to determine whether (and if so how) we should develop our WACC methodology to improve its robustness under changing market conditions, such as those since the global financial crisis (GFC).
