Energy Efficiency Council Head of Policy, Rob Murray-Leach, distils the latest news in poilcy both around Australia, and around the world.
Last week the Energy Efficiency Council (EEC) was delighted to launch the 4th edition of Navigating a dynamic energy landscape: a briefing for Australian businesses.
In some ways, the landscape hasn't changed much since the first edition of the briefing, but in other ways, it has changed dramatically, particularly with net zero now driving the agenda.
Last week, Energy Efficiency Council CEO Luke Menzel spoke with Tim Goodson from the International Energy Agency (IEA) to discuss the IEA’s Net Zero by 2050 report and the importance of front-loading action on the pathway to net zero.

In this month’s Efficiency Leader we are profiling Dr Hong Xian Li (Lily). Not only is Lily a Senior Lecturer at Deakin University’s School of Architecture and Built Environment, but she is also one of Australia's representatives to the International Energy Agency’s Energy in Buildings and Communities (IEA EBC) Programme.
While we weren't able to meet in person again this year, thanks to the industry's support we were able to come together virtually to learn, discuss and grow through the Energy Efficiency Expo. The virtual program was conducted across seven days, for seven sessions, and was free to attend.It was an outstanding encapsulation of the crucial role energy efficiency, energy management and demand management will play in decarbonising Australia and developing a net zero economy.
It has been an eventful COP26, with a new global climate deal and a range of collaborative efforts to accelerate the transition to net zero by 2050. So eventful it was hard to keep up!
If it has all flown by and you are looking to catch up see below for some of our favourite reporting and analysis from COP26.
