Electricity Support Schemes: Transitioning to I-SEM Arrangements Consultation

​This consultation is now closed. 

The Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment (DCCAE) is updating existing electricity support schemes supported by the Public Service Obligation (PSO) Levy (primarily for renewable energy).   This  updating is  necessary  as  some  of the  key  concepts  and parameters which  underlie  the PSO schemes are being replaced by  the new wholesale electricity market design which  is due to come  into  effect  from October 2018.

In May 2017, DCCAE published an information paper (the Options Paper) which outlined a number of options being considered as part of this decision making process and set out the Department's emerging thinking on the optimal outcome. Following extensive consultation with industry, the Department published a Proposed Decision on adapting the Electricity Support Schemes to the I-SEM in November 2017. 

The Department received 20 responses to the Consultation and the non-confidential responses are published below. The final decision paper following this consultation is available here​.
