Climate Institute’s Bold Energy Efficiency Plan

ACOSS welcomes the release of the Climate Institute’s energy efficiency strategy – which could create 40,000 jobs and save almost two dollars a day on household energy bills.

Australia’s National Strategy for Energy Efficiency Policy Paper is supported by ACOSS, Energetics, ACTU, CFMEU, the Brotherhood of St Laurence, the Australian Conservation Foundation, and the Green Building Council of Australia and was launched on 10 November 2008.

“Better residential energy efficiency is essential to improve amenity and comfort, minimise bills and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The task of improving residential energy efficiency offers great opportunities for low income households to play a part in climate change solutions.” – Lin Hatfield Dodds, ACOSS President.
