Abstract:

Improving Australia’s energy productivity is about obtaining more value from the energy we consume.
The National Energy Productivity Plan (the Plan) aims to improve Australia’s energy productivity by 40 per cent between 2015 and 2030. It is expected to deliver more than a quarter of the new abatement needed to meet Australia’s 2030 climate commitments.
The Plan plays an important role in better coordinating reforms across energy markets, energy efficiency and climate policy – helping to reduce emissions at least cost.
This presentation will give an overview of the Plan and its objectives of:
  • Boosting competitiveness and growth
  • Helping families and businesses manage their energy costs
  • Reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
It will look at how the Plan helps consumers by supporting smarter energy choices and better energy services through a wide range of measures.
The presentation will have a specific focus on opportunities within the residential sector. In particular, measures to improve residential building energy ratings and disclosure, and how the Government and Energy Consumers Australia’s work plan will support vulnerable energy consumers.
