New National Energy Compact a priority for Federal Ministry

The Energy Networks Association (ENA) has urged the Federal Minister for Environment and Energy to seek a renewed national compact on energy and carbon policy at the forthcoming COAG Energy Council meeting.

ENA Chief Executive Officer, John Bradley, welcomed the appointment of a single Federal Minister for Environment and Energy.

“This is an enormous opportunity to achieve true integration in Federal carbon and energy policy, but competing State and Federal policy settings are also increasing risks to customers at a time of dynamic change,” Mr Bradley said.
