A fresh start to National Energy Strategy in 2017

There is still time for Australian governments to work together to achieve a national energy plan in the interests of customers.

Energy Networks Australia Chief Executive Officer, John Bradley, welcomed the decision by State and Federal Governments to meet again in 2 months at a time when all stakeholders are urging greater collaboration and integrated national measures.

“We welcome the progress made today and urge State and Federal Governments to recommit to achieving a national energy blueprint in the interests of customers,” Mr Bradley said.

Ministers agreed to fast-track for consideration in February additional measures to strengthen the NEM and accelerate proof-of-concept projects in order to respond to security and reliability issues identified in the preliminary report.
