A2EP is working with a diverse range of partners and stakeholders to develop a 2xEP Roadmap across the economy and in particular sectors. The initial scope for the 2xEP program did not extend to freight transport. Our limited resources have not yet stretched to preparing an overview and summary for the sector. However, the sector is a critical consideration in improving economy-wide energy productivity. A working groups is established. More detail at 2xEP Freight Transport – Engagement. We welcome your participation, your contributions and comments. If you do have contributions or comments, please email info@a2ep.org.au

 
 
 
 
 

Greenhouse gas emissions, energy productivity and the Emissions Reduction Fund

Modelling for the 2xEP program suggests that doubling energy productivity by 2030 would reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 25% from business as usual. The Commonwealth Government is contributing to the energy productivity effort through the Emissions Reduction Fund. The ERF is supporting Australian businesses and households to take practical, direct action to reduce emissions and improve the environment. Its objective is to help achieve Australia’s 2020 emissions reduction target of five per cent below 2000 levels by 2020.
