Abstract

This paper aims to identify climate change adaptation issues in the Australian National Electricity Market (NEM) by assessing the robustness of the institutional arrangements that support effective adaptation from the demand side. This paper finds that three major factors are hindering or are required for adaptation to climate change: institutional fragmentation both economically and politically; distorted transmission and distribution investment deferment mechanisms; and failure to model and to treat the NEM as a node based entity rather than state based. Proposed solutions to the three factors are discussed. These proposed solutions are tested and examined in forthcoming reports.
