Minister For Energy And Emissions Reduction

Energy Networks Australia congratulates Angus Taylor on his re-appointment to the Morrison Cabinet in an expanded energy and emissions reduction portfolio.

Energy Networks Australia CEO Andrew Dillon said the industry looked forward to continuing to work with Minister Taylor in progressing a sustainable energy future at what was a critical time in the evolution of the sector.

“Our key priorities are the grid integration challenges of connecting renewables, both large and small scale, the National Hydrogen Strategy and maintaining the sector’s financeability,” Mr Dillon said.

“Energy and climate policies are closely linked and combining the two is a positive step towards the policy certainty and stability the industry needs.

“Renewable energy presents many opportunities but also challenges for the grid, which is why Energy Networks Australia has been working with the Australian Energy Market Operator on the Open Energy Networks project.”
