Council of Australian Governments' Energy Council

The Council of Australian Governments’ (COAG) Standing Council on Energy and Resources (SCER) is responsible for pursuing priority issues of national significance in the energy and resources sectors and progressing the key reform elements of the former Ministerial Council on Mineral and Petroleum Resources and the Ministerial Council on Energy.

Energy Council responsibilities

The standing council will:

  • progress consistent upstream petroleum administration and regulation standards
  • address issues affecting investment in resources exploration and development
  • develop a nationally consistent approach to clean energy technology
  • promote efficiency and investment in generation and networks
  • build on Australia's resilience to energy supply shocks.

With the commencement of Energy Council, the remits of the Ministerial Council on Mineral and Petroleum Resources and the Ministerial Council on Energy have been withdrawn.
