Draft Retailer Energy Productivity Scheme (REPS) Code
30 Nov 2020
The Retailer Energy Productivity Scheme (REPS) will replace the Retailer Energy Efficiency Scheme (REES) from 1 January 2021. The South Australian Government’s policy objectives for the REPS focus on improving the productivity of energy through demand shifting and response management capabilities, as well as improving energy efficiency.
As the REPS administrator, the Commission has the functions and powers as are necessary to give effect to the REPS.
The Commission has made a draft Retailer Energy Productivity Scheme Code (REPS Code) for consultation with stakeholders. The Commission is proposing that the initial REPS Code be based on the current Retailer Energy Efficiency Scheme Code (REES Code); the differences between the initial REPS Code and the REES Code being limited at this stage to necessary and consequential changes required by the revised statutory framework.
The Commission invites submission from stakeholders on the draft REPS Code by Friday, 11 December 2020.
A final REPS Code will come into effect on 1 January 2021 with the commencement of the new Retailer Energy Productivity Scheme.
