Supporting Aussie businesses through the energy transition

by Ulrika Lindholm

There is an enormous amount of information on energy in the public domain, yet it can be hard for business leaders to extract what matters for their businesses.  

To address this, the Energy Efficiency Council engages with businesses and their industry associations, supporting them with realising the multiple benefits of smart energy management. The Energy Efficiency Council’s energy briefing business engagement program, we help businesses cut through the noise and confidently navigate Australia’s dynamic energy landscape.

This program has been a great success; annual updates to the flagship report and sector spotlights on opportunities in government and manufacturing have been very well received. However we've received feedback from businesses that they would appreciate more timely, up to the minute briefings on developments in the energy world.

And so, last week we launched a brand-new energy briefing quarterly update, which provides businesses with practical and timely information on energy markets, energy policy and grant opportunities. Its also an opportunity to showcase leadership; the first edition of the update features a story of how Australian steel maker BlueScope is tackling the climate challenge head-on through proactive energy management. 

Thanks to support from industry, governments and other stakeholders, we are able to make this a free, independent resource that’s designed to benefit as many businesses as possible. So how can you help us do that?

  • Please share the energy briefing quarterly update far and wide – anyone can subscribe to receive future updates for free by clicking here;
  • If you think your industry or professional association would like to share some or all of this content with members, please reach out to us directly; and
  • As always, don't forget to check out the sector spotlights for offices, manufacturers and government agencies, and other great resources at
