From this Section
Since 1999, the National Generators Forum (NGF) has represented Australia’s electricity generators, ensuring a strong industry voice for open, competitive energy markets.
NGF members operate generation assets or sell wholesale electricity in the national and Western Australian electricity markets. Full membership of the association is available for businesses with 300 MW or more of generation capacity. Generators with less than 300 MW in capacity are eligible for associate membership and, at Board discretion, may be accepted as full members.
The NGF is dedicated to the principle of member ownership of the association. All member companies are represented on the NGF Board. A strong committee structure, involving three major working groups, ensure that members directly shape the NGF agenda. NGF policy is determined by consensus decision making.
The NGF Board is chaired by Mr Trevor St Baker, founder and non-executive chairman of ERM Power, one of Australia’s leading private energy developers. ERM Power operates across the energy supply chain from exploration, power station development and operation to electricity sales to large customers. In the last decade, ERM Power has built new generation capacity equal to 5 per cent of Australia’s total generation capacity.
Other NGF Board members include the chief executive officers of such major generators as Macquarie Generation, Eraring, Delta, CS Energy, Stanwell, Verve Energy, Ecogen and Hydro Tasmania.
