Generation Licences issued and surrendered – Eni Australia Limited
The Commission has issued three generation licences to Eni Australia Limited (the agent). Each licence is held jointly with another licensee (the principal).
The first licence is held jointly with Eni New Energy Katherine Pty Ltd for the Katherine Solar power station. The second licence is held jointly with Eni New Energy Batchelor Pty Ltd for the Bachelor Solar Farm power station. The third licence is held jointly with Eni New Energy Manton Dam Pty Ltd for the Manton Dam Solar Farm power station.
The generation licences allow the licensees to generate electricity at the electricity generating plants described in the licences and to sell and retail the electricity to other electricity entities holding a retail or generation licence.
In addition to the above, the Commission received written notice from Eni Australia Limited on 17 May 2022 that it intended to surrender its generation licence, originally issued on 1 November 2018, subsequent to and subject to the issue of the new generation licences, which apply to the same power stations. The Commission accepted the request to surrender the licence and has removed the licence from the Commission’s register of licences on issue.
