Malcolm Turnbull has failed to lead Australia into a clean energy future, resulting in higher prices and higher pollution.

We’ll give power back to consumers and give the energy market certainty.

Labor will take action because this is just too important to get wrong.

Lake Burley Griffin on a glorious spring morning in Canberra.

Labor has announced new policies to boost renewable energy generation and storage, create new jobs, and put downward pressure on power prices.

A Shorten Labor Government will:
• Modernise the energy market rules to give more power to consumers;
• Create Renewable Energy Zones to drive investment and jobs in the sector;
• Change the Clean Energy Finance Corporation’s investment return benchmark so it can invest in more generation and storage projects.

Labor will also adopt the Chief Scientist’s recommendation to set up a series of Renewable Energy Zones – based on both existing generation and storage and the potential for new development.

While the Turnbull Government fights with itself and blames everyone else, Labor is outlining a positive alternative to tackle out of control power prices, reduce pollution and create more jobs for Australians.
