ATSE Submission on the emissions reduction objective consultation

ATSE welcomes the opportunity to provide a submission to the review on incorporating an emissions reduction objective into the national energy objectives. ATSE endorses the emissions reductions objective and recommends that the proposed legislative changes:

Recommendation 1: Require energy market bodies to include a statement in their annual reports on how each of the energy objectives have been applied.

Recommendation 2: Require energy market bodies to publish a list in their annual reports outlining the emissions reduction targets that were considered when applying the energy objectives.

Recommendation 3: Broaden the reference to emissions reduction targets to include specific mention of compliance to interim targets.
