Energy Policy WA has released a paper on the applicability of the Consumer Data Right to the Western Australian energy sector.
On 26 November 2017, the Australian Government announced the introduction of a Consumer Data Right that will give consumers greater access to and control over their data. The Consumer Data Right has been operational in the banking sector since 1 July 2020 and implementation for the energy sector is under development. It is anticipated that the Consumer Data Right will eventually apply across the Australian economy.
While no date is set for implementation in the Western Australian energy sector, it is expected to apply in jurisdictions participating in the National Electricity Market in late 2021.
