Independent review of investment activity in the Australian electricity generation sector
About the review
In April 2011, an independent review was prepared for the Minister for Resources and Energy on investment activities in the Australian electricity generation sector.
The review assessed investment activity in the Australian electricity generation sector in the context of uncertainty around the introduction of a carbon price, and the impacts that it could have on energy security, reliability and electricity prices.
To assist with the development of the independent review, the Minister for Resources and Energy appointed an Investment Reference Group (IRG) to advise on energy sector investments.
The IRG was chaired by the Secretary of the Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism and included investors and operators of electricity generation assets, energy market bodies, project financiers and state government participants.
Deloitte was appointed as the consultant for the independent review.
