The EGRC regulatory scheme was put in place with the merger of Verve Energy and Synergy, which became the Electricity Generation and Retail Corporation, and began trading as ‘Synergy’ on 1 January 2014.

The EGRC regulatory scheme includes requirements for ring-fencing, business segregation, transfer pricing, non-discriminatory wholesale electricity trading and the provision by Synergy of standard products.

Each year we review the operation of the EGRC regulatory scheme and prepare a report for the Minister for Energy assessing its effectiveness and making recommendations for improvements.
