Forum on Doubling Energy Productivity (2XEP)
Australian Alliance to Save Energy
3 – 4 April 2014 — Aerial UTS Function Centre, Sydney
How do we double our energy productivity (2XEP) by 2030?
For decades, cheap abundant energy has driven growth in the Australian economy. But energy prices have escalated rapidly, with electricity prices doubling in the past 7 years, and business anticipating doubling in gas prices over the next 3-4 years. A combination of high energy prices and low energy productivity means that Australia’s competitive advantage in energy costs has rapidly eroded.
Without a major improvement in energy productivity, our economy will suffer and energy dependent businesses will be lost to Australia in increasing numbers.
As energy prices rise and carbon constraints bite, our future prosperity depends on using energy more efficiently. This Forum confronts this critical challenge.
