CEC Federal Election Policy Recommendations

Clean Energy Council Federal Election Policy Recommendations

The Clean Energy Council has released its Federal Election policy recommendations, urging all sides of politics to commit to strong, long-term clean energy policy. The 10 policies the CEC want to see all federal political parties adopt are as follows:

  1. Commit to a target of zero emissions from the electricity sector well before 2050 and a minimum target of 50 per cent renewable energy by 2030
  2. Accelerate reforms and finance support to develop Australia’s electricity transmission network for a clean energy future
  3. Encourage the uptake of energy storage and batteries
  4. Maintain the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES)
  5. Mandate solar power in all new homes
  6. Support innovation in finance, technology and integration and extend the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) and the Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC)
  7. Commit to the development of a clean energy export strategy.
  8. Support skills development to meet the demand of a growing clean energy industry
  9. Support the establishment of a battery manufacturing and recycling industry
  10. Develop a single national electrical safety body
