We regulate access to support competition by enabling third parties to access essential infrastructure that cannot be economically duplicated, including below-rail (track) infrastructure.
Water is an essential resource which requires careful management and regulation.
We are the economic regulator of water and wastewater services for Queensland.
Along with our more public role, in setting regulated electricity prices, we set the solar feed-in tariff for regional customers and enforce the Electricity Distribution Network Code.
Queensland’s 20 ports are crucial to the state's export-driven economy. Coal makes up the bulk of the exports by volume and accounts for nearly half of the total value of Queensland’s exports.

Electricity MEDIA RELEASE
The QCA has released its first market monitoring report for the south east Queensland retail electricity market.
The Queensland Competition Authority (QCA) has today released its first annual report into solar feed-in tariffs in south east Queensland.
QCA Chair Professor Roy Green said the QCA had produced the report under a direction from the Minister for Energy, Biofuels and Water Supply, Mark Bailey.
“This report shows that there was a wide variety of offers in the market for solar customers to choose from,” Professor Green said.
“The report also highlights that it is important for solar customers to consider the price of electricity as well as the feed-in tariff when choosing an electricity offer.
“For some customers, the offer with the highest feed-in tariff may not deliver the lowest overall electricity bill.
“It is important to note that QCA’s report covers the 2016–17 financial year, and that customers should always consider the most up-to-date information from the market when choosing an offer.”
