AER: invitation for submissions on ring-fencing waiver applications (submissions by 25 August 2017)
Electricity distribution businesses are implementing the AER’s Ring-fencing Guideline this year. Full compliance is required by 1 January 2018. The distributors have recently submitted compliance plans to the AER as well as applications for waivers they are seeking from certain ring-fencing obligations. Both the compliance plans and the waiver applications are now published on The AER’s website.
The AER will assess applications consistent with clause 5 of the Ring-fencing Guideline. A draft decision will be published toward the end of September.
Submissions on individual waiver applications are due by close of business on Friday 25 August 2017.
