Australian energy policy is at a crossroads and it is critical that all sides of politics commit to strong, sensible and enduring clean energy policy.

The absence of any long-term energy strategy at the federal level is crippling the Australian energy sector and increasing power prices for consumers. Despite the lack of federal leadership, the clean energy industry had a record-breaking year in 2018.

Imagine what we could achieve if this momentum continues. We cannot let this momentum stop.

For the 2019 Federal Election we called on all federal political parties to adopt our policy recommendations and will continue to do so.

We are calling on the federal political parties to adopt the following policies:

  • Commit to a zero emissions electricity sector target well before 2050 and at least 50 per cent renewable energy by 2030
  • Accelerate reforms and finance support to develop Australia’s electricity transmission network for a clean energy future
  • Encourage the uptake of energy storage and batteries
  • Maintain the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES)
  • Mandate solar power in all new homes
  • Support innovation in finance, technology and integration and extend the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) and the Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC)
  • Commit to the development of a clean energy export strategy
  • Support skills development to meet the demand of a growing clean energy industry
  • Support the establishment of a battery manufacturing and recycling industry
  • Develop a single national electrical safety body.
