Describes the Government’s almost $90m gas reform package to address immediate gas shortfalls and secure long term reliable supply.
The 2011 National Energy Security Assessment (NESA) continues and updates a process commenced with the inaugural NESA in 2009.
This report tested supply capacity in the region under 2 hypothetical refinery rationalisation scenarios in Australia
Sapere has been retained by the Australian Department of Industry (the Department) to prepare a report on the impact of extreme weather events on the National Electricity Market (NEM), to inform the Department’s preparation of a third National Energy Security Assessment (NESA).
The Energy Reform Implementation Group (ERIG) was a group established by the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) to review certain elements of the operation of Australia’s energy sector and to suggest further reforms, where there is a case for them, supporting more efficient energy markets.
The Senate Rural and Regional Affairs and Transport References Committee report, Australia’s Transport Energy Resilience and Sustainability was released in June 2015.
Energy security has been identified as one of the priorities for the Australian Government. The Government endorsed the development of the National Energy Security Assessment (NESA) to consider the key strategic energy security risks facing Australia currently and in 5, 10 and 15 years.
In April 2016, the Australian Government and the Tasmanian Government established this study of the feasibility of a second electricity interconnector (2IC) between Tasmania and Victoria. The study was initiated in response to energy supply challenges in Tasmania during 2015–16 caused by an extended outage of Basslink combined with low hydro water storage levels resulting from low rainfall.
The Panel commissioned the Melbourne Energy Institute (MEI) to perform a security assessment of a selected set of the emissions reduction policies modelled by Jacobs. MEI’s report includes analysis on future power system security issues under the selected policies. MEI also analysed one of these policies further, looking at the minimum level of synchronous generation required to be online for the secure operation of the National Electricity Market.
The Panel commissioned Jacobs to model a range of emissions reduction policies for the National Electricity Market. These policies were modelled over the period FY2017-FY2050. The modelling provides key insights on the impacts different policies have on consumers as well as on the National Electricity Market’s generation and capacity mix.
