The Morrison Government plans to weaken our brightest renewable funds – the Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC) and Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) – to let them splash cash into fossil fuels

Investors won’t back gas – neither should Australian taxpayers.

Independent and Centre Alliance representatives in our Parliament are powerful voices for public policy in the public interest. They can do a great job in holding the Government accountable. 

Their voices and their votes will be critical in the next three months as we work to keep our brightest renewable energy funds clean – and stop the Coalition giving public money to their mates in gas!

We call on Independent MPs Helen Haines, Zali Steggall, Andrew Wilkie and Rebecca Sharkie (Centre Alliance), and crossbench Senators Jacqui Lambie, Rex Patrick and Stirling Griff (Centre Alliance) to use their voices and votes and stand up for the Clean Energy Finance Corporation by:

  • Keep our clean energy agencies clean – don’t change their remit to support fossil fuels.
  • Maintain their independence – don’t give the Minister powers to override investment decisions of the independent board
  • Retain the requirement to deliver a return on investment to Australians – investors won’t back gas, and neither should taxpayers.

Let’s encourage Independents in the House of Representatives to use their voices to speak up for the public interest, as they have on so many important issues.

And let’s encourage Independents in the Senate to use their votes to protect our clean energy funds, as they have in the past.

Thank you for doing something about this catastrophic decision.

The CEFC and ARENA need to back renewables and storage, not be a trojan horse for gas and CCS

About time the current Australian government faced facts and started to do what the majority of people want – invest in renewables and set a target for 100% renewables as NZ have done. Get your act together!

No new gas – solar and wind with battery storage instead.

Clean energy is the only future. The gas lobby has too much influence over an ignorant Federal Government which is arrogantly ignoring public opposition to gas.

Please put the money and jobs into renewables to help save the planet

Hi folks. Your vote is really important both for our future and for the planet. If we want to keep Global Warming to a max 1.5 degrees we need to transition quickly away from fossil fuels. So, renewables are the way to go 😁

Gas is not the way to the future ; it will continue to add to our emissions fuel .

It’s devastating to see how instead of investing into healthy economic recovery with focus on clean energy, better grid and infrastructure, housing and education, government are pouring money into fossil fuel. It’s pushing our country back and does leave any future for our children
