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 for the next term of government and beyond.

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.

This Federal Election we are calling on all federal political parties to adopt our policy recommendations. You can help us by adding your voice to our campaign by contacting your MP and sharing our social media tiles.

  • Encourage the uptake of energy storage and batteries
