ESIA White Paper 2018
This White Paper: Setting Ambitious Targets for energy savings schemes Australia-wide 2019-2030, published 3 July 2018, is a quick-reference policy-setting guide summarising the case for extending and expanding existing energy savings schemes in Vic, NSW, SA and the ACT and introducing schemes in Qld, WA, NT and Tas from 2019 to 2030.
Existing energy savings schemes in Vic, NSW, SA and ACT have delivered an average annual reduction of total electricity consumption of almost four per cent.
Achievements up to end 2017:
> 2.3 million households and businesses have participated
> 5 million energy-saving upgrades so far
> 5 million MWh of electricity saved annually
> 5 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions avoided
> 4,000 jobs supported > $1 billion of customer bill savings annually
Energy savings schemes could do much more if expanded, extended and introduced across Australia.
The White Paper was released at the official launch of the Energy Savings Industry Association on 3 July 2018. (Media Release)
