Technology neutral policies will deliver lower bills

A move to “technology neutral” carbon policy could save a typical residential electricity customer $234 per year while still meeting Australia‘s emission reduction targets.

Speaking at Australian Domestic Gas Outlook 2016, Energy Networks Association (ENA) CEO, John Bradley, released analysis from a forthcoming Jacobs report on carbon abatement policy options and the outcomes for consumers.

“Australia’s carbon policy is at a crossroads and the next Federal Government will determine how efficiently we meet the 2030 carbon abatement commitments from Paris,“ Mr Bradley said.
