ACT Sustainable Energy Policy 2020-25

Consultation open

The ACT's current energy policy, the ACT Sustainable Energy Policy 2011-20, ends in 2020. While much has been achieved, maintaining the drive towards a zero-emission, reliable and competitive energy market is as important as it has ever been.

The Government has begun work on the ACT Sustainable Energy Policy 2020-25. The ACT Sustainable Energy Policy 2020–25 Discussion Paper examines and seeks input on a range of potential policy options to help the ACT to build upon the achievements of the earlier policy and continue to provide leadership in sustainable energy.

The key goal of the ACT Sustainable Energy Policy 2020-25 is to transition to renewable energy and zero greenhouse gas emissions in a way that is fair and equitable, cost effective and maintains the reliability of the energy system. The ACT Government understands the urgency of this task and will seek to act decisively while ensuring we do not leave people behind.

The ACT Government welcomes your feedback on the ACT Sustainable Energy Policy 2020–25 Discussion Paper to help shape and inform the direction of future ACT energy policy.

Please email submissions to EnergyPolicy@act.gov.au.

Submissions close on Friday 1 November 2019.

To encourage further public discussion, it is the intention that submissions will be published unless otherwise marked as confidential. Please mark any information appropriately when making your submission.
