Frontier to advise NSW government on electricity asset sale

On 28 December 2007 the New South Wales (NSW) Treasurer announced that Frontier (Australia) will be one of the companies advising the New South Wales government on the A$15 billion-plus partial privatization of the state’s electricity assets.

The NSW government intends selling the retail arms of Energy Australia, Integral Energy and Country Energy while the “poles and wires” assets of these companies remain in Government ownership. The government will also issue long-term leases for its electricity generators to the private sector.

The NSW Government selected Frontier for its in-depth knowledge of the Australian energy market and its experience gained from leading previous energy reform and privatisation programs in Australia.
