The Panel is Chaired by Ms. Chloe Munro, the former Chair of the Clean Energy Regulator and panel member of the Finkel Review. The Panel supports AEMO in delivering key initiatives and implementing the endorsed Finkel recommendations. The Panel also plays a crucial consultative role across AEMO’s broad remit of activity.
