Energy Futures: National Energy Guarantee – why is it so important and what happens next?
State Library of New South Wales

The National Energy Guarantee has become the central issue of energy and climate policy in Australia over the last nine months. It is the child of the Energy Security Board (ESB) and currently consumes their attention and that of the media, industry and commentators. The April meeting of the Council of federal, state and territory energy ministers agreed that the ESB should proceed to a final, detailed policy design. But what is this "guarantee", why is it so important and partly contentious, and what must be done to implement it?
Join the ESB Chair, Kerry Schott, Grattan Institute's Tony Wood and Tim Nelson from AGL as they explain, discuss and debate these issues and respond to your questions in a Public Forum. This Forum will be moderated by Jennifer Hewett from the Australian Financial Review and is brought to you by the Melbourne Energy Institute, Grattan Institute and the State Library of New South Wales.
