The National Greenhouse Strategy (NGS), launched in 1998, was a broad strategy for all levels of government, and included an energy component. Progressive restructuring of the electricity and gas industries led to greater competition amongst generators, supply efficiency improvements, and innovative promotion of renewable energy. Continued energy market reform has been a key element of Australias greenhouse response and of the NGS. Further reforms outlined in the NGS included the delivery of consistent and compatible national frameworks for gas and electricity and removal of barriers to grid connection of small-scale generation, such as cogeneration and renewable sources.
