Globally and domestically, the biggest challenges are the shrinking gap between energy supply and demand, the privatisation debate, climate change demands and the impact of renewable energy on the energy supply mix.
In Australia, specific issues include:
- securing energy sources
- managing energy pool participation
- dealing with supply risks resulting from not being part of a national market
- encouraging private investment in the sector
- responding to climate change.
