Describes the energy-related measured announced in the 2017-18 Portfolio Budget Statements. These measures address how Australians can access reliable and affordable energy as we transition to a low emissions future.
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.
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.
