Energy Policy Institute of Australia (EPIA)
The Institute (EPIA) is Australia's only apolitical, not-for-profit, energy policy body.
EPIA provides a mechanism by which all stakeholders in Australian energy may collaborate on risks and concerns impacting on energy finance, production, supply and export, where those risks may not have been fully addressed by existing industry organisations.
It acknowledges all environmental concerns as well as the paramount interest of the public in having access to reliable, affordable and clean energy.
2022 The Energy Transition:
Following the Glasgow Climate Change Conference at the end of 2021 and the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, the Albanese Government was elected in May 2022. It enacted a Climate Change Act converting Australia’s emissions reduction targets into law. A very high level of public interest arose in the Energy Transition, what it would mean for Australia’s energy security and climate goals and what it would mean for both public policy and corporate policy.

Key Goals and Principles of a Post-COVID-19 National Energy Plan (May 2020)
EPIA warmly supports the Government’s position that economic recovery post-COVID-19 should be pursued by a pro-growth agenda. EPIA maintains that energy is an indispensable component of such an agenda. EPIA posits that, over the next decade, Australia should have a National Energy Plan to move towards a pro-growth, more resilient, diverse, decarbonised, innovative and productive energy sector. This is the first edition of EPIA’s Key Goals and Principles of a Post-COVID-19 National Energy Plan.
