National Strategy for Energy Efficiency

03 Nov 2008Archived News Energetics in the News

Today The Climate Institute released the National Strategy for Energy Efficiency, as a key initiative in the effort to drive down national carbon emissions levels.

 

Energetics is a supporter of this report and its conclusions. Energetics' founder, Jonathan Jutsen, is quoted in the Report:

“We have been working with business on improving energy efficiency for 25 years and while progress has been made the current drivers and incentives favour the use of more energy rather than less. Business uses more than 70% of Australia’s energy - so driving efficiency with business will deliver major emission reductions as well as cost savings for business. But this does need to be guided by policy, as our current business models are not designed to use energy wisely. Energetics endorses The Climate Institute’s call for a broad and effective National Strategy for Energy Efficiency to realign incentives and legislation, to harness business innovation to make a real impact on our emissions.”

The Council of Australian Governments (COAG) has committed to developing a National Strategy for Energy Efficiency in support of the Federal Government’s pre-election promise to put Australia “at the forefront of Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) energy efficiency improvement.” Implementation of a strategy is scheduled for June 2009.

Energetics can help Australian businesses realise their energy efficiency opportunities and achieve significant cost savings.
