Review of Queensland's energy legislation
Since Queensland's energy legislation was first introduced, the energy sector has undergone rapid and disruptive change. New technologies, services and business models are challenging how the electricity and gas supply industries should be regulated.
We are reviewing the Electricity Act 1994, the Gas Supply Act 2003 and the Energy and Water Ombudsman Act 2006 to assess how well the legislation is functioning, and whether it is able to keep up with changes in the industry.
A public consultation to receive feedback on the Review of Queensland energy legislation: issues paper (PDF, 605.9KB) was held 8 May 2018 to 19 June 2018.
This included a series of targeted stakeholder forums and an opportunity to make written submissions. These can be accessed below.
What happens next
We are currently analysing the submissions and feedback received through the consultation process. This will support the development of the consultation regulatory impact statement (RIS).
The RIS will be released for public consultation in July 2019.
