About this event

Australia’s electricity grid was originally built around a centralised model of coal fired generation — public financing underpinned initial infrastructure. Renewable energy is now the cheapest method of new generation in most circumstances. However, the regulatory framework which governs our national electricity markets and the nation’s transmission infrastructure requires significant upgrades to ensure consumers and businesses can benefit.

With the launch of its Energy Initiative, Blueprint Institute will bring together MPs, academics and industry leaders to probe the key questions confronting those who govern and administer Australia’s complex energy sector. Topics for discussion will include;

How do we reform regulation to get market-settings right and ensure Australia’s electricity sector functions efficiently?

How can the nation achieve a reliable energy system with low emissions at the lowest cost?

How can Australia ensure we capitalise on the market opportunities that align with our world-beating solar, wind and mineral resources?

What are the barriers to renewable energy acceleration in this country?

Panelists:

– Matt Kean, New South Wales Minister for Energy and Environment

– Steven Hamilton, Chief Economist, Blueprint Institute
