• Decision to grant amendments to electricity and gas on-selling licence exemptions

    On 23 December 2016 the Governor approved amendments to the Electricity Industry Exemption Order 2005 and Energy Coordination Exemption Order 2009 to: 

    • expand the scope of electricity and gas on-selling licence exemptions to allow a third party to manage an on-seller’s embedded network and supply customers within the network on behalf of the on-seller;
    • grant a gas trading licence exemption for the on-selling of gas on commercial premises (this is a class exemption that applies to all persons undertaking this activity);
    • require commercial electricity and gas on-sellers and residential gas on-sellers to provide billing information to their customers (residential electricity on-sellers are already required to provide billing information to their customers); and
    • amend the definition of ‘commercial premises’ to ensure it adequately reflects all types of non-residential premises that may be serviced under an electricity on-selling arrangement.

    The Electricity Industry Exemption Order 2005 was amended by the Electricity Industry Exemption Amendment Order (No.2) 2016. The Energy Coordination Exemption Order 2009 was amended by the Energy Coordination Exemption Amendment Order 2016.

    The Electricity Industry Exemption Amendment Order (No.2) 2016 and Energy Coordination Exemption Amendment Order 2016 were published in the Government Gazette on 23 December 2016 and are available on the Government Gazette website [external].
