The National Framework for Energy Efficiency (NFEE) aims to unlock the significant but un-tapped economic potential associated with the increased uptake of energy efficient technologies and processes across the Australian economy. It aims to achieve a major enhancement of Australia’s energy efficiency performance, reducing energy demand and lowering greenhouse gas emissions.
NFEE covers a range of policy measures, designed to overcome the barriers and challenges that prevent the market delivering the actual economic potential of energy efficiency.
NFEE is being developed cooperatively with the involvement of all government jurisdictions and key stakeholders.
NFEE focuses on demand-side energy efficiency, primarily in the residential, commercial and industrial sectors. It also considers energy use in energy conversion and addresses intermediaries who can influence energy efficiency choices, such as energy retailers, builders, financiers and appliance suppliers.
The National Framework comprises a number of inter-linked policy dimensions, illustrated below:
