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.

Despite the introduction of the federal Australian Domestic Gas Security Mechanism, there remains much to do if we are to achieve affordable gas supply on the east coast.
Given the complex issues in gas markets, the EUAA view is that we now need to think differently and consider making uncomfortable changes if we are to see any impact on market liquidity and the price of delivered gas.
Attached is the EUAA National Gas Strategy Discussion paper which proposes a number of ideas. We invite further discussion on this paper, and welcome other ideas.
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 EUAA view is in Australia’s best interests to be part of a global climate change solution that minimises overall costs of decarbonisation of its economy and takes advantage of new technological and economic opportunities.
To ensure the transition to low carbon energy market is both economically and environmentally efficient, investment grade policy is required.Central to this must be a market-based mechanism that puts a price on carbon.
Climate change policies must be clear in their intent, consistent and fair in their application and always seek to minimise the financial impact on consumers while meeting the government’s international commitments.
The attached document (from pg 6) outlines EUAA Climate Change position.
