Reduce Energy Usage
Australia lags behind many developed countries in regulations for use of efficient building insulation, cooling and heating. Federal action could legislate to ensure that all new buildings have much better energy efficiency, and provide incentives for existing buildings to improve their status. We have a very low uptake of electric vehicles for personal and public transport. Registration incentives for fuel efficient vehicles and provision of more charging stations across the country would help considerably in making this a more attractive prospect in order to reduce reliance on fossil fuels.
What actions do you plan to reduce the use of carbon-based energy and coal production?
