  • Genesis acknowledges EA decision on August 9 UTS claim

The Electricity Authority’s final decision on the claim that an Undesirable Trading Situation (UTS) occurred on the August 9 2021 concludes all investigations involving Genesis.

Genesis CEO Marc England said this decision, like all conclusions drawn from previous investigations, confirms that Genesis acted appropriately on August 9 and did not breach the Electricity Industry Participation Code or cause a UTS.

“We have worked with Transpower and others in the sector, including taking part in a grid emergency preparedness exercise, to ensure the lessons learned from August 9 are applied in the future,” said England.
