Read the Coalition for Community Energy (C4CE)’s submission to the House Standing Committee on the Environment and Energy’s Inquiry into the Australian Local Power Agency Bill 2021 and Australian Local Power Agency (Consequential Amendments) Bill 2021.
In the submission we provide an overview of C4CE, our work and the unique value of community energy, building resilience and prosperity in regional and urban communities around Australia.
We then discuss the key merits of the Australian Local Power Agency, specifically:
- How the Local Power Hubs will create new social and economic opportunities.
- Why underwriting and grants are so critical to the development of this dynamic sector.
- The potential flow on benefits from facilitating community investment in commercial projects.
