Electricity Ring-Fencing Compliance

The Ring-fencing Guideline is designed to promote competition by establishing a level playing field for all providers of contestable electricity services. As a business providing services which the Australian Energy Regulator considers monopoly in nature, the Ring-fencing Guideline prevents us from discriminating in favour of our own business (or affiliated businesses) and cross-subsidising between monopoly services and contestable electricity services. You can find out more about the Ring-fencing Guideline here.

Ringfencing Registers

Australian Energy Regulator’s Electricity Distribution Ring-fencing Guideline requires Jemena Electricity Network (JEN) to maintain and publish these registers on our website.

Register’s Purpose

Link to Register

This register identifies any offices within Jemena premises in which the following personnel are co located (this includes communal areas):

  • Jemena Personnel who are involved in the provision of direct control services for JEN, other than JEN Designated; and
  • Related Electricity Service Provider (RESP) Personnel.

Office Register

This register lists  the legal entities (including both RESPs and third parties) that request access to JEN Confidential Electricity Information under the JEN Information Sharing Protocol.

This register identifies:

  • the legal entity that has requested access; and
  • the kind of information that was requested, in sufficient detail so that other legal entities can decide whether to request access to information of that kind.
Information Register
This register contains a description of the conduct, and terms and conditions of JEN’s  AER approved waivers (including interim waivers and waiver variations). Waivers Register
Jemena Electricity Networks’ (JEN) staff register lists the teams or specific roles that:
  • are involved in providing or marketing of direct control services for JEN, and
  • may also from time to time have involvement in the provision or marketing of contestable electricity services for a related electricity service provider (RESP) of JEN,
but where those staff have the benefit of one or more of the exemptions from the Guideline’s staff separation requirements.
