Energy Efficiency Description:

A report to the Australian Transport Council (ATC) and the Environment Protection and Heritage Council (EPHC) by the joint ATC/EPHC Vehicle Fuel Efficiency Working Group has been finalized and can be accessed at http://www.coag.gov.au/sites/default/files/vehicle_fuel_efficiency_working_group_final_report.pdf

The report is in response to a request to ATC and the EPHC from the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) to:

“Develop jointly a package of vehicle fuel efficiency measures designed to move Australia toward international best practice”.

The report provides an evaluation of a number of potential vehicle fuel efficiency measures, following consideration of the stakeholder comment to the Working Group’s discussion paper released in September 2008. The evaluation is based on the Working Group’s assessment of the effectiveness of measures in an international and local context and comment from key stakeholder organizations.
