Energy Security Board Established

Identified as one of Finkel’s three key pillars, the ESB has been established to provide whole-of-system monitoring of security, reliability and planning across the functions of AEMC, AER and AEMO.

Dr Kerry Schott has been appointed inaugural chair of the ESB and will oversee the delivery of the annual Health of the NEM report to the COAG Energy Council which identifies system performance, risks and opportunities for improvement.

The aim of the ESB is to facilitate the orderly transition to a more reliable and secure energy system and market.

If you have any questions about the ESB or the energy system generally, please contact Kathryn Walker or Leah Cowell.
