AGL recognises the substantial work in the Finkel blueprint and is optimistic that the solutions it puts forward will deliver a more secure, reliable and affordable energy system, provided they are implemented in an integrated fashion.
AGL has long been advocating for changes in the market that better support and integrate renewable energy generation and deliver more reliable and affordable energy for customers.
We support the recommendations for advanced notice of closure of thermal plant and a 'dispatchability' requirement for new renewables when AEMO deems it to be necessary.
Our announcement this week to build a new fast-start, more fuel-efficient gas-fired power station in South Australia reflects our commitment to investing in a new modern energy system.
