AER seeks additional information to support retailer authorisation applications in current market conditions

The Australian Energy Regulator (AER) is seeking additional information from applicants for retailer authorisation.

The AER authorises retailers who:

  • possess necessary organisational and technical capabilities, and 
  • have the requisite financial capacity, and
  • are suitable to operate in the retail market.

The additional information will enable applicants to meet these criteria in light of current market conditions and should be read in conjunction with the existing Retailer Authorisation Guideline that sets out the entry criteria applicants need to meet to obtain an authorisation under the National Energy Retail Law.
