Beyond Zero Emissions welcomes the Department of the Environment and Energy’s invitation to make comments on the Independent Review of the National Electricity Market.

Beyond Zero Emissions submits that the Council of Australian Governments commits to securing Australia’s electricity through a National Electricity Market powered by 100% renewables.

Energy security cannot be considered separately to the other core objectives of the electricity system – affordability and emissions reduction. We need to rapidly secure an energy supply that supports a thriving Australian economy while meeting our international commitment to limit warming to well below 2°C.
