Policies & Submissions

The EUAA is Australia’s largest energy user advocacy organisation. Our members are part of a critical network of companies spanning food, transport, technology, energy, mining, real estate, provision of raw materials, entertainment, and professional services that benefit the Australian community.


Over the last 10 years Australia has given up its comparative advantage in competitively priced, highly reliable energy that has underpinned significant industrial development and employment for many decades.


In assessing the causes of this it is important to highlight the broad range of issues impacting on energy users. All too often the debate and by virtue of this the policy and regulatory response, focuses on just one element when a more holistic response is required.

While inroads are being made in relation to the supply and price of domestic gas. While a new mechanism to better manage these issues has been introduced by the Federal Government in recent times, there is still more to be done to ensure a reliable and affordable gas supply is available.


To review the EUAA position on issues to do with gas, please download the attached document.




Sustainability is a key issue in energy which relates to emissions and long term energy supply. Energy users rely on an efficient and sustainable supply of energy in which to operate their business; sustainability is therefore a key consideration.


The attached document provides a summary of  the EUAA position on issues including sustainability.
