The Institute's response to the Energy Green Paper is now available. Click here.
It contains nine recommendations, framed as a single package. In summary we are making two main points.
Firstly, that the principle of technology neutrality is critical to Australia's future energy policy. Energy wars only do damage to the economy, industry and the community (Recommendation 1).
Secondly, Australia cannot arrive at, much less pursue, a long-term national energy vision simply by the Commonwealth publishing a White Paper every time there is a change of government. An independent review mechanism is required to bring together the necessary resources and expertise in a way that is attuned to industry and community concerns. A task force that reports to the COAG Energy Council may be as good a place as any to start (Recommendation 8).

In it's proposal to the Prime Minister and the Leader of the Federal Opposition, the Energy Policy Institute of Australia calls for the establishment of an independent National Energy Commission to integrate its energy and energy-related climate policies.
It is the view of the Institute that Australia's existing energy and climate policies and measures are in disarray. They lack any unity of purpose and they lack any enabling mechanism to work towards any unity of purpose. Because of this, they do not enjoy an adequate level of industry or comunity trust.
Australia's lack of policy integration cuases inefficiency, it damages the nation's investment reputation and it diminishes the national's international competitiveness.
