Australia is in the midst of an energy transformation with crucial decisions to be made for the future of our energy system. The federal government proposed a National Energy Guarantee as an alternative policy to the Clean Energy Target (CET) recommended by the Finkel Review. The Clean Energy Council was disappointed with this change of direction as a CET was the best opportunity in years to lock in the long-term bipartisan energy policy needed to encourage investment in cleaner energy while improving system reliability and pushing down power prices.
The Clean Energy Council continues to work with the Energy Security Board on what a detailed design of a National Energy Guarantee would look like.
This section of the website explores the issues related to the National Energy Guarantee, the Finkel Review and its proposed policies as well as the current state of energy security in Australia and the role renewable energy can play in the solutions.
