The Reliability Panel forms part of the AEMC’s institutional arrangements and has detailed functions and powers conferred on it within the National Electricity Law (NEL).

It is the responsibility of the Reliability Panel to monitor, review and report on the safety, security and reliability of the national electricity system plus perform any other functions or powers under the NEL or National Electricity Rules (NER).

The Panel is comprised of members who represent a range of participants in the National Electricity Market, including small and large consumers, generators, network businesses, retailers and the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO).

The Panel determines the standards and some of the guidelines used by AEMO and other market participants which help to maintain a secure and reliable power system for consumers.
