Submission on the Electricity and Energy Sector Plan

As Australia has moved towards a decarbonised economy, the focus has been on changes that consumers can make to reduce their individual footprint. It is important to ensure that this focus on individual action does not evolve to penalising those without the means to invest in efficiency. Unless governments act to provide options for people facing structural or financial barriers, then only those with the means to invest will see the benefits. The Electricity and Energy Sector Plan must therefore place equity at its core.
