State energy ministers meet this week to discuss the National Energy Guarantee. While the policy has been criticised as too modest, it would put us light years ahead of the previous climate policy paralysis.
The Energy Security Board (ESB) has provided advice to ministers on reliability, affordability and meeting Australia's international commitments. This comes in response to the Australian Energy Market Operator’s recent report on the risks to reliability in the electricity market.
This audit shows current policies will reduce National Electricity Market (NEM) emissions to 22% below 2005 levels in 2019-20, effectively meaning electricity sector has an emissions reduction target of only 4% to 2030.
This discussion paper argues that requiring Australia’s agricultural sector to reduce emissions by at least 26% by 2030 would impose significant costs and reduced production for the industry.
Central to the public debate about the National Energy Guarantee (NEG) has been the numerical forecasts of its effects – in particular how much it will reduce power prices.
The proposed final design of the National Energy Guarantee (NEG) will require retailers to contract for generation or demand response to meet a minimum level of dispatchable ‘on demand’ electricity where there is an identified gap. Retailers must also keep their emissions below an agreed...
This paper outlines the detailed design of the Commonwealth elements of the National Energy Guarantee (NEG), including feedback received from stakeholders during consultation on the draft design.

If the government offers Labor a deal it can accept, it will be rejected by the Coalition’s backbench. It’s hard to escape the obvious conclusion.
