South Australia's Energy Future

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

We want your feedback on a comprehensive policy to shape our state's energy future.

What's being decided?

The Government of South Australia is embarking on a consultative process to develop a comprehensive energy transition policy for the next three decades.

We want to achieve this through early and meaningful engagement with the people who make energy, the people who use it and the people who regulate it.

All South Australians are central to this consultation.

The transformation of our energy sector offers significant opportunities for the state including sustainable economic development, social inclusion, energy security, improved health, and job creation.

As a first step, South Australia’s Green Paper on the energy transition has been developed to encourage conversation and generate ideas on the challenges impacting South Australia’s use of energy, both now and in the future, and the opportunities these challenges bring to the state as we transition to a net-zero emissions future.

We want your feedback on the many questions this Green Paper poses, and any other feedback you have.

Background

For almost two decades, South Australia has been at the forefront of the global energy transition and we are recognised as an international renewables powerhouse.

A traditional one-way system delivering electricity to homes and businesses is transforming to a modern, two-way system where people can now consume, generate, export and trade energy.

With new technologies such as rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, batteries, electric vehicles, smart meters and smart appliances continuing to be developed and installed on an ever-increasing basis across the state, our electricity grid is undergoing significant change.

Work done to date, both in South Australia and beyond, provides a valuable first step for further policy development to achieve a prosperous and sustainable net-zero emissions energy future for the state.

What are the next steps?

Feedback on our Green Paper will be used to develop a comprehensive White Paper, that will set out where we are now, where we need to be and how we will get there as we transition to a net-zero emissions future.
