Strategy

Description

This White Paper’s focus is on increasing competition, energy productivity and investment to deliver reliable and cost competitive energy to households and business.

Overview

The Government released the Energy White Paper on 8 April 2015.

The White Paper’s focus is on increasing competition, energy productivity and investment to deliver reliable and cost competitive energy to households and business.

To support this vision, the Australian Government is leading, through the Council of Australian Governments Energy Council, market reforms for more competition and consumer choice.

A National Energy Productivity Plan is being developed for improving Australia’s energy use against a global and transitioning energy market.

The Australian Government is also putting in place the right market settings to maintain our investment attractiveness and ability to adopt new technologies.

The principles set out in the White Paper provide a rationale for these actions and future decision-making, giving industry and consumers certainty in energy policy.
