Energy Security Board – Draft Detailed Design of the National Energy Guarantee: Consultation Paper
Publication date: Friday, 15th June 2018.
The draft Detailed Design of the National Energy Guarantee (Guarantee) has been released by the independent Energy Security Board for public consultation. The Guarantee has been designed with the intention to deliver more reliable, affordable and cleaner energy to Australian consumers.
Detailed Design Process
The Energy Security Board’s high level design proposal for the Guarantee was presented to a meeting of the COAG Energy Council on 20 April 2018. It was agreed the Energy Security Board should progress development of the detailed design of the Guarantee, for determination at the COAG Energy Council’s August 2018 meeting.
The Energy Security Board released a series of issues papers in May 2018 to facilitate discussions with jurisdictions and Technical Working Groups on several detailed design elements. The feedback from these discussions has informed the draft Detailed Design.
To provide further detail on some of the technical elements of the draft Detailed Design, the Energy Security Board released a series of Technical Working Papers on 22 June 2018. The Technical Working Papers build on the issues papers released in May and feedback from stakeholders.
A stakeholder forum was held in Melbourne on 2 July 2018.
Following the release of the draft Detailed Design Consultation Paper on 15 June 2018, the Energy Security Board has received more than 90 submissions on the consultation paper. The consultation process has now closed and the Energy Security Board thanks stakeholders for their participation.
The feedback received in response to the consultation paper will help inform the Energy Security Board’s final design that will be considered by the COAG Energy Council at its meeting in August 2018.
