Comments on the NSW Energy Efficiency Trading Scheme Discussion Paper

AEBN responded to the NSW Government’s document NSW Energy Efficiency Trading Scheme Discussion Paper. While AEBN accepts that an energy efficiency trading scheme can be useful, it should only be administered at the Commonwealth Government level. The NSW Government uses a number of poor reasons to justify its partial continuation of the NSW Greenhouse Gas Abatement Scheme (GGAS). AEBN does not support the NEET scheme as it is a duplication of legislation which the NSW Government is actively spreading to Victoria, South Australia and other States.

 AEBN argues that Australia should be a leader in greenhouse emissions regulatory efficiency as well as other initiatives. However, running more State based schemes for a national and global issue is considered regulatory inefficient, costly and bureaucratic for little environmental gain compared to similar schemes run at the Federal level.
