The COAG Energy Council Energy Working Group conducted a consultation process to seek comments on the National Electricity Law and National Gas Law Amendment package.
In 2016 the former COAG Energy Council agreed the National Collaborative Approach to Residential Building Ratings and Disclosure – Principles. These principles have been established to guide the consistent development and collaboration of state and territory based residential building ratings and disclosure schemes.
Energy Ministers acknowledge the progress being made to deliver the Trajectory for Low Energy Buildings and its Addendum (the Trajectory) and the impacts the COVID-19 pandemic has had on industry and stakeholders. This has led to extended delivery timeframes for a number of work streams in the Trajectory. Energy Ministers also agreed to release the DRAFT National Framework for Disclosure of Residential Energy Efficiency Information for broader consultation throughout 2022.
On 12 August 2022, Energy Ministers agreed to establish a new National Energy Transformation Partnership. The partnership is a framework for national alignment and cooperative action by governments to support the smooth transformation of Australia’s energy sector.
