ENA congratulates new Minister, pays tribute to Ian Macfarlane

The Energy Networks Association today congratulates the Hon Josh Frydenberg on his appointment as Minister for Resources, Energy and Northern Australia and acknowledges the leadership and service of outgoing Minister, The Hon Ian Macfarlane.

ENA CEO, John Bradley, said that Minister Frydenberg takes on the energy portfolio at a time of significant change in the sector, with a important task ahead in progressing reform.

“Under the umbrella of COAG Energy Council, Federal and State Governments have identified an important reform agenda for the energy sector, particularly with regard to the transition to a cleaner energy system, electricity network tariff reform, and support for vulnerable customers.

“Evidence-based policy processes should guide our focus in continued energy reform,” Mr Bradley said.
