GridX Power Pty Ltd network exemption (refused)

Individual exemption
Exemption class: 
Individual exemption (class)
Notice status: 
  • GridX Power Pty Ltd


In April 2006, the Applicant applied to the AER for an exemption from the requirement to register as an NSP under the NEL and the NER. The application sought an in-principle indication from the AER that if a GridX model network were constructed, GridX would be entitled to be granted an exemption from registration in respect of its interest in that network.

In May 2007 the AER determined that it would not grant a general exemption for networks operated under the GridX model, either from the obligation to register as a NSP or the operation of chapter 5 of the NER. Instead, the AER determined that such installations should, in future, be subject to individual authorisation.
