Submission to Investment Certainty Rule Change

This rule change comes at a critical point in the NEM transition. The rapid and unplanned exit of thermal coal generation, combined with a national target to achieve 82% renewables by 2030, means it is critical that we accelerate new investment in renewable generation and storage.

Submission on Vicgrid Options Assessment Method to Offshore Wind Transmission in Gippsland and Portland

Victoria’s transition to renewable energy requires the timely construction of new transmission lines to enable upcoming offshore wind farms to connect to the grid. Delays to transmission means delays to these projects, which keeps Victoria’s greenhouse gas emissions high, contributing to greater climate impacts.

Submission on the Essential Services Commission’s Land Access Code of Practice draft determination

Victoria has set targets of reaching 65% renewable energy by 2030 and 95% by 2035. These targets are commendable and represent an essential element of the state’s response to the climate crisis. Because much of the state’s best wind and solar resources do not overlap with the previously dominant source of electricity (ie. Latrobe Valley brown coal generators), Victoria’s transition to renewable energy requires the timely construction of new transmission lines to enable wind and solar farms in other parts of the state to connect to the grid. Delays to transmission means delays to wind/solar projects, which keeps Victoria’s greenhouse gas emissions high, contributing to greater climate impacts.

Senate Inquiry into Residential Electrification Submission

Home and business electrification is not only critical to the net zero goals of our energy systems, but it is also one of the cheapest ways to transition to a modern economy driven by renewable and clean energy.

Australian households have played a large and important role in driving the decarbonisation of our electricity system. This will need to continue if we are to meet our net zero goals by 2050 and the growing demand from the phase out of oil and gas in transportation and buildings. A rapid transition to electrifying homes and encouraging the uptake of consumer energy resources (CER) is required.

Submission to the AEMC Directions Paper on Unlocking CER benefits through flexible trading

The CEC submission supports the AEMC’s decision not to progress the proposed model of multiple Financially Responsible Market Participants (FRMPs e.g. retailers or aggregators) for residential and small business premises due to the implementation challenges and related costs that would come with introducing AEMO’s proposed model (FTM2).

The CEC submission highlights other ways to unlock CER benefits, which should be prioritised above this proposed rule change.
