Energy experts are gathering in Melbourne to discuss the Clean Energy Target, the only recommendation of a national review into the electricity system not adopted by the federal government.
Chloe Munro, who sat on the panel for chief scientist Alan Finkel's review, will join a panel of energy experts to discuss how a CET will work to boost investment and transform Australia's energy market.
The Turnbull government has accepted 49 of its 50 recommendations but is still considering the central proposal for a clean energy target, with some among its ranks raising concerns over the role of coal power.
A target would mandate the amount of electricity to come from generators below a set emissions level.
A poll commissioned by the Climate Council, published last week, found 77 per cent felt a target was important, especially 18 to 24-year-olds (83 per cent).
Wednesday's discussion is expected to centre around design options, implementation, impact and opportunities for stakeholders in Australia's energy market.
Ms Munro was until recently the Executive Chair of the Clean Energy Regulator, the independent statutory authority established to administer the carbon pricing mechanism and other key pieces of Australia's climate change legislation.
The CEDA panel will also feature Rachel Watson, chair of the Clean Energy Council and Andy Vesey, CEO of AGL.
