Australia has long found competitive advantage in the abundance of energy available to its industry and domestic population, however the shift from fossil fuels to renewable energy has led to challenges as scale, distribution and network reliability have not met the changing requirements.

Following the recent Finkel Review, Australia is setting a course to better facilitate the change, develop and execute it more effectively. This includes the need to balance the competing needs to keep costs low and meet reducing carbon footprints while delivering certainty in supply and importantly for investors as they look to build new capacity in the market.
