The Marinus Link Consumer Advisory Panel (CAP) was established in March 2022, drawing consumer representatives from community, business and industry. You can view the CAP members here.

The CAP represents a dedicated avenue for consumer input and feedback on the project, with a particular focus on Marinus Link’s Revenue proposal to the Australian Energy Regulator. Marinus Link has delivered informative roundtable sessions to the CAP to provide them with the information they need to make informed decisions, followed by deliberative workshops to provide opportunities for feedback.

The CAP made an independent submission (.pdf) to The Australian Energy Regulator in response to Marinus Link Pty Ltd’s Revenue Proposal part A Early Works, for which MLPL received a Revenue Determination (.pdf) in December 2023.
