|Energy Efficiency Description:|
In December 2015, the Australian COAG Energy Council launched a new National Energy Productivity Plan (NEPP) to meet a commitment to an energy productivity target of 40 per cent improvement between 2015 and 2030.
The NEPP is expected to contribute more than a quarter of the savings required to meet Australia’s 2030 greenhouse gas emissions reduction target. The NEPP will complement existing policies such as the Emissions Reduction Fund and will aim to avoid placing additional burdens on business.
The NEPP will include both existing and new initiatives that support:
Measures to improve energy productivity include traditional energy efficiency measures, but also wider economic reforms promoting efficient energy use decisions and markets, such as efficient pricing, services competition and fuel switching.
