Federal Government’s Energy White Paper consultation

Consumer Action made a substantial submission to the Federal Government’s Energy White Paper consultation. The Draft White Paper is largely directed to industry development and investment, but is silent on important consumer issues, such as improved regulatory processes, dealing with market failure in the retail market, or recognition and control of market power. Drawing on international experiences, this submission challenges the Government to produce a White Paper that addresses the range of social, economic and environmental issues that affect our country’s future energy needs.
