2017 Annual Report - The Health of the National Electricity Market (December 2017)

pdf graphicClick here to download the Energy Security Board's 2017 Annual Report on "The Health of the National Electricity Market". 

This report is the most readable piece of common sense written on the NEM since it was first established. Congratulations are due to the members of the ESB and all those who might have helped behind the scenes, as well as of course to the Finkel Review committee who recommended establishing the ESB itself.

Its special virtue lies in the fact that it should be easily digested by political leaders, their advisers and communities around the nation, as well as by the press. It thereby has the potential to greatly reduce, although it could never eliminate, the politics that pervade the energy debate.

There are, as might be expected, some very important issues that will require sorting out, such as the need to flesh out what the catch-phrase ‘technology neutrality’ really means in practice but, as a report on the Health of the NEM, this is an essential foundation for further discussion.in the new year.
