Abstract
The Retailer Energy Efficiency Scheme (REES) is a South Australian Government energy efficiency scheme that provides incentives for South Australian households and businesses to save energy. It does this through establishing energy efficiency and audit targets to be met by electricity and gas retailers.
Part 4 of the Electricity (General) Regulations 2012 (under the Electricity Act 1996) and Part 4 of the Gas Regulations 2012 (under the Gas Act 1997) (Regulations) establish the policy framework of the REES. The scheme initially commenced on 1 January 2009 as the Residential Energy Efficiency Scheme. From 1 January 2015, the Residential Energy Efficiency Scheme was replaced by the Retailer Energy Efficiency Scheme and now includes small business. The Regulations can be viewed at www.legislation.sa.gov.au.
The Regulations establish the Essential Services Commission of SA (Commission) as the administrator of the REES. The Commission administers the scheme within the parameters defined by the policy framework to ensure that energy retailers comply with the REES. The Commission is also responsible for reporting to the Minister for Energy and Mining (Minister) annually on retailers' progress in achieving the required targets.
