Government priorities


A fair deal on energy

These are the 3 pillars of our Energy Policy Blueprint, which sets out clear objectives and detailed policies to ensure a better energy future for Australia.

The Australian Government is already implementing key aspects of this blueprint.

We are delivering reforms to put downward pressure on electricity and gas prices and ensure our markets are well-regulated and transparent. We are encouraging new reliable supply and technology. We are investing in new ways to make our energy system cleaner and more efficient.
