The Eastern Energy Buyers Group (EEBG), on behalf of its current and future members, seeks authorisation for 11 years to establish a joint energy purchasing group.
EEBG members wish to pool their collective demand for electricity and gas and place one or more tenders into the market calling for proposals to meet their electricity and gas needs.
The current members of EEBG operate in the agri-business sector, in food production and processing of agricultural commodities. Each has significant operations in Victoria.
On 1 September, the ACCC granted interim authorisation to enable EEBG to investigate potential electricity, gas and gas transport supply options, prepare tender documents, and issue one or more tenders. Interim authorisation does not extend to EEBG or its members entering into any supply agreements for electricity, gas or gas transport services.
On 22 November, the ACCC issued a final determination granting authorisation for eleven years for the proposed conduct.
A copy of the determination is available by following the links below.
