Protecting regional Australia, our industries and the jobs of hardworking Australians is at the heart of the Coalition Government’s emission reduction policies.

Australia’s shift towards renewable energy is something to be proud of. Last year alone, a record 7,000 megawatts of new renewable capacity was added to our electricity grid, confirming Australia’s standing as a world leader in solar and wind energy generation.

As a proud and successful trading nation, Australia is a strong supporter of open markets free of the barriers that impede markets for our exporters and drive up prices for Australian consumers. 

Australia’s competitive advantage has always been based on affordable, reliable energy. As we turn to our economic recovery from COVID-19, affordable gas will play a central role in re-establishing the strong economy we need for jobs growth, funding government services and opportunities for all. 

In life, business and politics there are few opportunities that tick most of the boxes. Increasing the use of gas in Australian east coast electricity generation and industry, balanced with other energy sources, is one of those opportunities.
