Integrating Australian Energy and Climate Policy (30 August 2013)

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.
