Consultation on offshore electricity infrastructure regulations and cost recovery
The Australian Government is consulting on the draft regulations and proposed cost recovery arrangements under the offshore electricity infrastructure framework. The regulations are being released in stages with the first set focused on the licensing scheme, fees and levies, spatial referencing and treatment of pre-existing infrastructure to coincide with commencement of the Offshore Electricity Infrastructure Act 2021 and Offshore Electricity Infrastructure (Regulatory Levies) Act 2021 on 2 June 2022.
The proposed cost recovery arrangements and modelling for fees and levies under the framework are set out in the Cost Recovery Implementation Statement (CRIS). Interested stakeholders are invited to provide feedback on the draft regulations and CRIS by no later than 22 April 2022.
