Electricity Supply Industry Act Review
The Electricity Supply Industry Act 1995 (ESI Act) aims to promote efficiency and competition in the electricity supply industry, and to provide for a safe and efficient system of electricity generation, transmission, distribution and supply. The review will consider the ESI Act (as well as all attendant Regulations and Codes) in the context of changing operations, technologies and markets to ensure it remains appropriate for its intended purpose.
The Department of State Growth undertook a public consultation into the ESI Act. Interested parties were invited to provide input to the review. The Working Group is reviewing the submissions received form stakeholders and once considered by the Government proposed changes to the ESI Act will be subject to a period of further consultation with market participants and relevant stakeholders.
Listed below are the publicly available submissions to the Electricity Supply Industry Act 1995.
