Overview

On 16 August 2019, we commenced a review of the current electricity distribution ring-fencing guideline. The objectives of this review are to update the ring-fencing guideline to clarify some obligations and to make compliance less administratively complex.

On 20 November 2020 we published an issues paper. Submissions for this paper are now closed and available to view.

On 26 February and 3 March 2021, we held stakeholder workshops to explore further issues around SAPS and energy storage devices.

Background

On 17 October 2017, we published the final amended Ring-fencing Guideline (Guideline) and Explanatory Statement.
