The Australian Government is undertaking a National Energy Security Assessment (NESA) and a Liquid Fuel Security Review to help deliver affordable and reliable energy in Australia.
We expect that the liquid fuel security review will be completed in late 2019. It will contribute to the NESA and will inform Australia’s approach to return to compliance with the International Energy Agency (IEA) treaty.
What are national energy security assessments?
The NESA will consider Australia’s energy needs now and into the future. It will look at the risks to energy supply and the costs of supply to consumers.
Energy security assessments
Two NESAs were previously released in 2009 and 2011.
A number of studies have been commissioned to monitor and analyse energy supply chains.
