Reducing Investment Uncertainty in the National Electricity Market (NEM)

In December 2014, the COAG Energy Council tasked the Australian Energy Market Commission (AEMC) with examining whether there are any material barriers to orderly exit of generation plants and tasked the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) with providing advice on system security and reliability in the context of generation exit and changing generation mixture.

The reports from the AEMC and AEMO are provided to improve stakeholders’ awareness of the scope and progress of the COAG Energy Council’s work on this theme, provide transparency of process, and provide an opportunity for the sector to engage on the issues.
