Boosting Australias Energy Productivity Report

Jun 24, 2013 - 3:31pm

Australia’s poor investment in energy efficiency is costing the nation tens of billions of dollars in economic growth.

First-of-its-kind 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.
