COAG EC: Energy Security Board – Ministerial Power to make Rules Consultation Paper (Submissions by 29 September 2017)

A key recommendation of the Finkel Review was the establishment of the Energy Security Board (ESB), comprised of the AEMC, AEMO, and AER, with independent Chair and Deputy Chairs.

The Statutes Amendment (National Energy Laws) (Rules) Bill 2017 (“the Bill”) establishes a mechanism by which a proposed Rule recommended by the ESB, once it has the unanimous support of the COAG Energy Council, can be made by the South Australian Minister for Mineral Resources and Energy under the National Electricity Law (NEL), National Energy Retail Law (NERL) or National Gas Law (NGL), as appropriate.

Stakeholders are encouraged to review and comment on all aspects of the draft Bill in submissions by close of business (AEST) on Friday 29 September 2017.
