The Finkel review explained: what's in it, and why you should care

Alan Finkel, Australia's chief scientist, is due to release his review of Australia's energy market on Friday afternoon. The review has the potential to dramatically shake up the future energy supply of this country. So what do you need to know about it?
Stephanie Peatling.

First, what is the Finkel review?

The Finkel review is the shorthand name for a review of the national electricity market, commissioned by federal and state energy ministers last year.

It was prompted - in part - by the blackouts in South Australia, which focused national attention on energy security.

The review will provide governments with a blueprint for energy security across the grid. It will also look at affordability and sustainability, as more renewable energy flows into the electricity system, and coal-fired power stations close.
