Why do you need an Embedded Network Manager?
The Queensland Government has implemented the Australian Energy Market Commission (AEMC) Power of Choice (POC) reforms and rules as of the 1st of December 2017. Essentially the POC legislation enables individual tenants or lots in an embedded network to establish a child National Meter Identification (NMI) to facilitate the engagement of retailer of choice. This has resulted in a new accredited role in the National Electricity Market an Embedded Network Manager. (ENM)
Embedded Network Manager
An Embedded Network Manager is responsible for the establishment and maintenance of static data for a site where an occupant has elected to leave the embedded network. This child NMI is separated from the embedded network and billed distinctly by the newly contracted retailer of choice.
An ENM is a highly regulated entity that is accredited by Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) to act in this role where appointed and is required to adhere to strict processes and ongoing compliance which includes a rigorous audit program to maintain accreditation. An ENM is a totally separate entity to your Parent Retailer or Billing Agent and operates in complete isolation.
This service is brought to you in conjunction with Locality Planning Energy as a service to ensure compliance and consumer protections for strata communities.
