On 31 May 2018, the Commission issued an electricity generation licence to Greentricity Pty Ltd, authorising the operation of a generating plant consisting of a 30 megawatt lithium ion battery.

The Commission assessed Greentricity Pty Ltd’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, with the inclusion of the additional technical licence conditions, all relevant criteria under those Acts have been satisfied.

Greentricity Pty Ltd applied for an electricity generation licence on 26 October 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 also sought technical advice from the Australian Energy Market Operator and the Technical Regulator.
