Beginning 1 December of 2017, all individuals who oversee an embedded network of energy distribution within a building will need to adhere to new rules issued by the government. These rules state every embedded network operator (ENO) must provide a pathway for purchasing power from outside the network. To facilitate this, the regulations stipulate you must designate an accredited embedded network manager for your Melbourne operations. An organisation in this role will not only coordinate with your customers who wish to purchase on-market electricity, but will also work in close collaboration with you. As you might expect, this change could have significant ramifications for embedded network operators.
More competition in the marketplace can only be good for consumers. It may allow you to negotiate an even better rate for your tenants. However, it also brings with it new challenges. Don’t worry, though — navigating these new regulations does not have to be a source of anxiety. View it instead as an opportunity to evaluate your efforts and put into place a system for more robust management.
