Energy & Carbon Policy
The electricity sector contributes around one third of Australia's total emissions, so has a critical role in meeting emissions reductions targets. The Commonwealth, states, and territories have a range of policies that aim to reduce emissions in the electricity sector.
The National Energy Productivity Plan (NEPP) is designed to increase the value we get from our investment in energy. It's an effective way to lower emissions and reduce costs, while improving our competitiveness and growing the economy and jobs.
The E3 Program
The Equipment Energy Efficiency (E3) program increases the energy efficiency of appliances to reduce energy use, emissions and to help save households and businesses money.
