Our annual report to the Minister describes the savings targets set for electricity retailers and how they are met under the Energy Savings Scheme
Annual Report to the Minister
We track our performance through our yearly report to the Minister.
The Electricity Supply Act 1995 prescribes IPART’s functions as Scheme Administrator and Scheme Regulator for the Energy Savings Scheme. Under the Act, IPART must submit a report on compliance with the scheme by participants by no later than 31 July each year. The Minister is required to table the report before both Houses of Parliament. Once the report is tabled, it is made publicly available.
