National Energy Productivity Plan

The National Energy Productivity Plan (NEPP) is a COAG Energy Council agreed package of measures to improve Australia’s energy productivity by 40% between 2015 and 2030.

The COAG Energy Council recognised that improving energy productivity helps:

  • businesses reduce their energy costs through innovation and modernising their infrastructure
  • households benefit through lower energy bills and increased home comfort
  • Australia reduce its greenhouse emissions

The NEPP takes a whole‑of‑system approach to energy policy and covers electricity, gas and transport fuels. It includes:

  • energy market reforms to promote consumer choice and increase competition and innovation in the energy market
  • energy efficiency measures that support better energy use in buildings, equipment and vehicles
