Consultation on Draft Metrics for the Strategic Energy Plan
Publication date: Thursday, 14th February 2019.
The Independent Review into the Future Security of the National Electricity Market (the Finkel Review) recommended that the COAG Energy Council develop and maintain a Strategic Energy Plan for the National Electricity Market. The purpose of the Strategic Energy Plan is to ensure a clear strategic focus for the Energy Council’s work and to provide clarity of direction to market bodies and market participants.
Tangible metrics which track progress against the Strategic Energy Plan need to be identified and agreed. This will enable problems to be recognised in a timely manner and suitable actions implemented. It is intended that the ESB’s annual Health of the NEM will report against the agreed metrics.
The ESB undertook initial consultation on proposed metrics in November 2018 and again in February/March 2019. The second round of consultation closed on 8 March 2019.
