Independent Review into the Security of the National Electricity Market

The National Electricity Market is not working for Australian farmers and needs serious reform. The NFF recognises that Australia’s generation mix needs to change as existing infrastructure assets reach the end of their useful lives and to meet emissions reduction targets. The entire Australian community relies on secure, affordable access to electricity and other forms
of energy, and the Australian agriculture sector is no different. The current regulatory regime is
not serving the interests of users and this is particularly the case for Australian farmers. The regulatory regime needs to be updated to maintain ongoing relevance of the National Electricity
Market (NEM) to consumers and to meet future challenges.
