Episode notes

Along with ambitious commitments to renewable energy, the Albanese Government has set its sights on decarbonisation and energy efficiency, putting the nation's energy policy wonks to work over the summer.

In Episode 85 of First Fuel, EEC CEO Luke Menzel and EEC Acting Head of Policy Alex St John (a man who in his own words, “skews wonk”) discuss the “Summer of Submissions”.

Luke and Alex unpack the EEC's thoughts on the proposed ⁠National Energy Performance Strategy⁠, as well as ⁠climate-related financial disclosure⁠, the ⁠Powering the Regions fund⁠, and of course, ⁠reforms to the Safeguard Mechanism⁠.
