The Commission assessed LMS Energy’s application for an electricity generation licence against the relevant provisions of the Electricity Act 1996 and the Essential Services Commission Act 2002 and determined that all relevant criteria under those Acts have been satisfied. 

LMS Energy applied to the Commission for an electricity generation licence on 17 March 2017. The Commission undertook a round of public consultation in relation to the application and received no submissions from stakeholders. In making its assessment, the Commission sought technical advice from the Australian Energy Market Operator and the Technical Regulator.
