Vision for growth

Energy savings schemes in Australia are expanding with targets increasing significantly to 2030. The value of this market is estimated to be worth $800 million a year in 2025*. The two certificate-based trading schemes in NSW and Victoria show the most significant legislated opportunities for growth. NSW is committed to 2050 and now includes the NSW Peak Demand Reduction Scheme (PDRS) including peak demand reduction and plans for demand response and shifting. The Victorian Government has indicated it is considering the VEU beyond 2030 and has officially recognised the need for flexible/demand beyond 2025. The federal government in its National Energy Performance Strategy appears open to laying a pathway for a national scheme of some sort, with the influential Business Council of Australia advocating for a vulnerable household energy savings scheme.
