Grimes Review – government response

Statement from the Director of Energy Safety, Paul Fearon

The Victorian Government today released the final report of the Review into Victoria’s Electricity and Gas Network Safety Framework with its response. The review was undertaken by Dr Paul Grimes and can be found here.

I welcome the report. It provides a further springboard for ESV to build its capacity and capability to hold energy network businesses accountable for designing, operating and maintaining their infrastructure safely. The in-principle support for changes to legislation by the Government will also ensure Victoria’s regulatory frameworks are fit for purpose to meet emerging energy safety challenges into the future.

ESV’s corporate plans and annual reports will continue to publicly track progress against the recommendations directed to ESV for implementation.
