The Finkle Review

In October 2016 the Council of Australian Governments Energy Council (COAG Energy Council) initiated a major review of the NEM chaired by Australia’s Chief Scientist, Alan Finkel AO.

The objective of the Independent Review into the Future Security of the NEM is to design a blueprint for how we get from the current market to one that achieves committed emissions abatement targets for the electricity sector* while ensuring a secure energy system at a reasonable cost.

The Final Report was submitted to the COAG Energy Council on 9 June 2017 and is available on the Department of Environment and Energy’s website.
