Government priorities


Energy security assessments

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. 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.

Commissioned reports

A number of studies have been commissioned to monitor and analyse energy supply chains.
