News announced first Open Energy Data transfer

Thursday 10 November 2022 13:13 CET | News, an Australia-based provider of Consumer Data Right (CDR) solutions, has announced the world’s first transfer of open energy data via the Consumer Data Right.

The transfer was made in partnership with Fiskil, a real-time Open Data platform and Accredited Data Recipient (ADR). Fiskil’s soon-to-be-launched platform will allow users to securely link their energy accounts and data to service providers and comparison sites in order to verify identity and account information, validate real-time account balances, access usage data, and access detailed billing data.

Amid rising energy prices, new mandates from the ACCC that require all major energy retailers to share their data with accredited service providers, including comparison sites, will be enforced from November 15th.

Similar to how the banking and financial services industry has introduced Open Banking in recent years, these new regulations, also referred to as Open Energy, will allow consumers to get more tailored, competitive services. In October, Energy Australia was granted a 6-month extension.

The announcement comes as the CDR continues to expand its remit, with the Treasury recently completing its consultation period on a draft bill to enable Action Initiation, a new capability that will allow consumers to use the CDR to ask businesses to initiate actions on their behalf, including payments, switching or updating details across providers.

Open Energy in Australia

The market for energy in Australia is complex, and there are lots of organisations out there that hold data about the way you use energy. Open energy will give customers access to this data for the first time.The CDR legislation that sits behind open energy passed through Parliament in August 2019.

Originally, the CDR rules had stipulated that energy companies would push data through a designated gateway, but this has since been amended to a peer-to-peer data access model. The shift to the peer-to-peer access model best aligns with how consent and data are managed by retailers who have direct relationships with customers.

The big goal for open energy is to make finding the better energy plans for customers easier than ever. If this is achieved, then the hope is that this will lead to increased competition in the energy sector as more people switch to the best-priced plans on the market.
