The SEC will operate as a state owned company, SEC Victoria Pty Ltd, led by a chief executive officer with a board of directors to oversee ongoing business operations and delivery of our strategy.

The SEC will be a company incorporated under the Corporations Act 2001 (CTH) and declared a state-owned company under the State Owned Enterprises Act 1992 (VIC).

Our Strategic Plan outlines the scope, functions and objectives of the SEC and was developed under the guidance of an Expert Advisory Panel comprising some of Australia’s most credentialled energy experts. It is one of a suite of documents that guides our operations to ensure they align with Victoria’s energy transition goals.

The SEC company constitution establishes what we will do and rules for our operation, governing the relationship between the SEC Board, shareholders, the Minister for the SEC, and the company.
