Independent Review into the reliability and stability of the National Electricity Market

About the Review

At an extraordinary meeting on 7 October 2016, COAG Energy Ministers agreed to an independent review of the national electricity market to take stock of its current security and reliability and to provide advice to governments on a coordinated, national reform blueprint.  The review will draw together and build on work of the Australian Energy Market Operator, the Australian Energy Market Commission, the Australian Energy Regulator and gas market reforms. The review will be led by the Chief Scientist, Dr Alan Finkel AO.   

The national reform blueprint will outline national policy, legislative, governance and rule changes required to maintain the security, reliability, affordability and sustainability of the national electricity market.     

Please refer to the Terms of Reference, the Department of the Environment and Energy website or the Meeting Communique for more information.
