Submission to the Preliminary Report of the Independent Review into the Future Security of the NEM

The Independent Review into the Future Security of the National Electricity Market, chaired by the Chief Scientist, Dr Alan Finkel AO, is undertaking a wide-ranging public consultation process on its Preliminary Report to inform the development of recommendations for the final blueprint.

Dr Alan Finkel presented the Preliminary Report of the Review to the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) Leaders’ Meeting on 9 December 2016.

The Preliminary Report identifies the complex forces driving a rapid transition across the electricity sector.  It sought input on key questions to navigate the transition in line with consumer expectations for a secure and reliable service, at an affordable price, that delivers on our national emissions reduction commitments.

Today AGL made this submission to the Preliminary Report.
