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.

The time to start acting to reduce carbon emissions was 20 years ago. It is imperative that government assumes its moral and ethical responsibility and responds urgently to this issue.

We need governments to realise that fossil fuels are not the future. We need to switch to renewables now, not in 10,20, 30,40 years. Step up Australia show the world how it’s done. Lead the world, don’t follow. Show them how great we are and what can be done.

We really need to get onto this clean energy effort and you must understand that the ordinary man on the street supports this. We at least need a run in period expanding renewable power whilst phasing out gas & other fossil fuel. we must have the confidence demonstated by other nations that have achieved this effort that have fewer clean energy resources than we have here in Australia. Thank you
