Security, Sustainability and Stability of the National Electricity Market

On 7 October 2016, The COAG Energy Council agreed to an independent review to ensure Australia’s energy security as we transition to a lower emissions future. The independent review will draw together and build on the analysis and findings of the recent and ongoing work streams of the Energy Council.
An expert panel with extensive experience in business, energy markets, science and engineering have conducted the review on the security of the National Electricity Market and will assist Dr Alan Finkel, Australia’s Chief Scientist who is chairing the review.
On 9 December 2016, Dr Finkel delivered his preliminary report to the meeting of Council of Australian Governments (COAG).
The panel will conduct stakeholder consultations and deliver a blueprint to maintain energy security and reliability in the National Electricity Market, next year.
