Access to sustainable, affordable and secure energy is one of the major Australian strategic priorities to maintain and improve the health of Australians, sustain economic growth, and to mitigate climate change. Australia is investing in clean, efficient, reliable energy systems to secure a prosperous and, environmentally sustainable future. In addition, exploring the options to ensure energy security by diversification of energy sources is an important aspect for securing stability in meeting and delivering the future energy requirements of different industry sectors. This paper discusses options to manage the production of electricity in Australia using available Australian resources while maintaining international competitiveness.
