Implications of extreme weather for the NEM

Date

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).

Energy Reform - The way forward for Australia - Final report

Date

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.

National Energy Security Assessment 2009

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.

Feasibility of a second Tasmanian interconnector

Date

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.

Power System Security Assessment of the future National Electricity Market

Date

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.

Report to Independent Review into the Future Security of the NEM

Date

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.
