Energy Reform Implementation Group: The way forward for Australia (Final Report)
About the implementation group
The Energy Reform Implementation Group (ERIG) was a group established by the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) to review certain elements of the operation of Australia’s energy sector and to suggest further reforms, where there is a case for them, supporting more efficient energy markets.
ERIG was asked to recommend proposals for:
- achieving a fully national transmission grid
- measures that may be necessary to address structural issues affecting the ongoing competitiveness and efficiency of the electricity sector
- measures that may be necessary to ensuring there are transparent and effective financial markets to support energy markets.
The implementation group was established on 10 February 2006.
