The Australian Alliance to Save Energy
The Australian Alliance to Save Energy is an independent, not-for-profit coalition of business, government and environmental leaders promoting energy efficiency and decentralised energy. A2SE aims to inform, influence and advance the efficient use of energy in Australia.
For decades, cheap abundant energy has underpinned Australia's economic growth. As energy prices rise, and carbon constraints bite, our future prosperity depends on using energy more efficiently. Using less, while doing more is key to Australia’s economic future. This Forum tackles this critical, ambitious challenge: How do we double energy productivity in Australia?
The Forum will map a path to doubling Australia’s energy productivity by 2030 by asking what could be achieved sector by sector; what the barriers are; and what policy measures should be taken to achieve this goal.
With the new Federal Government seeking comments on many issues including Australia's current energy productivity and efficiency situation and ways to improve productivity and efficiency, the Forum could not be more timely. Read the Energy White Paper - Issues Paper for more details.
The Forum will reflect the experiences of the U.S. Alliance to Save Energy who initiated a similar project in 2012, which led to President Obama's Administration adopting a goal of doubling America's energy productivity by 2030.
