Presumptive Licence Holders
The Electricity Supply Industry Restructuring (Savings and Transitional Provisions) Act 1995 (ESIR Act) notes that industry participants at the time of commencement of that Act were presumed to have a licence under the
Electricity Supply Industry Act 1995 (ESI Act) in order to operate.
A presumptive licence ended at the expiry of 6 months from the commencement of the ESIR Act unless the participant applied for a licence under the ESI Act. If they applied within that time, the presumptive licence would remain effective pending the determination of the application.
In addition to applications by Transend Networks and Aurora Energy, a number of applications for licences were received from generators. Most of those generators are, by virtue of their capacity and the provisions of the Electricity Supply Industry Regulations 2018, exempt from the requirement to hold a licence. The following table lists the current presumptive licences under the ESIR Act.
