The Digital Smart Energy Code

We have digitised the Smart Energy Code (SEC) to make it more accessible and user-friendly, and you can now easily search the SEC for areas relevant to you as a SEC Party.

The SEC is over 850 pages, plus schedules and appendices, which means it’s a long document to get to grips with! Some areas are relevant to all SEC Parties, others are Party specific. So, where do you begin with such an important, extensive document?

If you are a SEC Party, you can now download details of the obligations that are relevant just to your Party type, without the details that apply to other Parties. This will not only save you time, it will also help you be clearer about what your Party needs to do to fulfil your obligations under the SEC.

Use CodeWorks to view the SEC

SECAS has digitised the SEC using CodeWorks. It is a web-based, searchable version of the SEC where you can filter the Code to determine the areas relevant to your Party type.
