Resources & Energy
The Greens have an ambitious and achievable vision of Australia powered 100% by renewable energy – and the policies to get us there while keeping power prices affordable. We are proud to have delivered, through negotiations for the Clean Energy Future package, record-breaking investments of $13.2 billion in renewable energy, governed by statutory independent boards, and over $1 billion to help householders, small businesses and communities groups to save energy and money.
Where the old parties see Australia’s resources only as minerals and woodchips, we see clean and never-ending supplies of sun, wind and wave, and most importantly clever, energetic and innovative people. Only by recognising that our economy operates within ecological limits will Australia be able to become a stable, competitive and responsible player in the 21st century.
