Tackling climate change and energy affordability for low-income households18 September 2018
This report draws on modelling that examined the impacts that different emissions reduction targets, and the exclusion of Energy Intensive Trade Exposed industries, would have on residential retail electricity prices and carbon emissions.
The findings show that a more ambitious emissions reduction target represents better value. A 45% emissions reduction target produces double the emissions reduction, and roughly the same impact in lowering electricity bills, compared with a no or low emissions target.
