Australia’s poor investment in energy efficiency is costing the nation tens of billions of dollars in economic growth.
research conducted by Vivid Economics, and commissioned in partnership
with GE, found if Australia improved its energy efficiency by just an
extra one per cent each year it would generate an additional $8 billion
in GDP by 2020 and $26 billion by 2030. It reaffirms that improvements
in energy efficiency and economic growth are not mutually exclusive, and
that strategic policies can deliver improvements in Australia’s
productivity, as well as cut energy bills and carbon pollution.
