Building Code Energy Performance Trajectory Project – Issues Paper [PDF 2.58 MB]

ClimateWorks Australia has partnered with the Australian Sustainable Built Environment Council (ASBEC) to support the development of an industry-led and evidence-based pathway towards ambitious, long-term targets for energy performance requirements within the National Construction Code. The first publication in this project is an Issues Paper, with an interim report on project findings due in November 2017 and a final report including a policy pathway and cost-benefit analysis due in March of 2018.

The State of Electric Vehicles in Australia [PDF 5.65 MB]

The State of Electric Vehicles in Australia report provides an up-to-date assessment of Australia’s electric vehicle industry. While electric vehicles currently only make up 0.1% of the Australian vehicle market, our analysis of electric vehicle uptake, policy and consumer attitudes shows that momentum is building.

ClimateWorks Australia Submission to the Review of Australia's climate change policies [PDF 1.36 MB]

ClimateWorks' submission to the review of Australia's climate change policies outline the importance of a target of net zero emissions by 2050. Our submission draws on engagement with key stakeholders, as well as our extensive research, which demonstrates we can reach net zero emissions while growing employment and our economy. The submission also makes the case that while delay and policy uncertainty will increase costs, a net zero by 2050 target, as part of a long-term plan, enables an effective transition.

Plug & Play: Facilitating grid connection of low emissions technologies — Consultation summary paper [PDF 826.36 KB]

See also the second report from this project.

For Australia to play its fair share in the global effort against climate change we must ensure that the innovative technologies and business models required to meet climate targets and drive energy productivity can readily participate in the energy market. The objective of the Plug and Play project is to identify and drive the implementation of institutional and policy solutions to make grid connections for existing and emerging technologies as straightforward and cost effective as possible for customers and proponents, while safeguarding electricity supply.
