Reliability Panel

The Reliability Panel forms part of the AEMC’s institutional arrangements that support the national electricity system. The Panel's core functions relate to the safety, security and reliability of the national electricity system.

System security

The AEMC has a substantial system security and reliability work program underway. It is focused on the impact of the changing generation mix: how the system is kept in a secure state, with enough generation and demand response capability to supply consumer needs.
