The Clean Energy Regulator was established as an independent statutory authority by the
Clean Energy Regulator Act 2011 (the Act).
The name ‘Clean Energy Regulator’ refers to both the body corporate and the public service agency established under the Act.
The body corporate, also known as the Regulator, consists of the Chair and between two and four other Members. The Members set the strategic direction, risk appetite and delegation framework for the Clean Energy Regulator to administer the regulatory schemes for which it is responsible.
The public service agency, known as the agency, comprises the Chair and officers of the Clean Energy Regulator and is a statutory agency under the
Public Service Act 1999. The Chair of the Regulator is the Chief Executive Officer of the agency. The agency supports the Regulator in the performance of its responsibilities.
In 2013–14, the Clean Energy Regulator was a prescribed agency under the
Financial Management and Accountability Act 1997.
