The Australian Government monitors Australia's energy security through National Energy Security Assessments (NESA) and specific commissioned studies to monitor and analyse energy supply chains.
What are national energy security assessments?
The Australian Government has prepared two National Energy Security Assessments in 2009 and 2011. These are forward-looking assessments that identified vulnerabilities and challenges to the adequate, reliable and competitively-priced delivery of Australia’s liquid fuel, gas and electricity to consumers at a point in time.
How are these assessments and studies used?
These assessments and reports are used by governments, market institutions and businesses to identify where change may be needed to address challenges affecting delivery of electricity, gas and liquid fuels to consumers and mitigate risks.
