Residential Electrification Inquiry
BZE has deep expertise and history in the benefits of household electrification, demonstrated through our research:
Australia’s residential building sector accounts for around 24% of electricity consumption and is responsible for around 11% of national greenhouse gas emissions. Full household electrification can enable Australians to enjoy good, comfortable, energy efficient, electrified homes as they face the challenges of a warming climate, while reducing their ongoing energy costs. Household electrification can also expand job opportunities in existing industries and make a significant contribution to our emission reduction targets.
Key recommendations include:
Expansion of Capacity Investment Scheme a welcome step forward but more needs to be done
There are further opportunities to keep energy costs down for households and drive Australian manufacturing.
Australia can capture niche battery markets
Australia can create a battery manufacturing industry targeting Australia’s grid and heavy vehicle battery markets.
