Make a picture submission to the Clean Energy Finance Corporation

The expert review panel on the design of the new renewable energy funding body– the Clean Energy Finance Corporation - has made a request for submissions on how this new body can help overcome barriers to the development of renewable energy in Australia.

Let's pass the renewable energy legislation now!

Whisperings from Canberra have told us head of the Clean Energy Finance Corporation is shortly to be announced.

Yet the legislation that will establish this body (and the new renewable energy agency ARENA) to oversee the $10billion of renewable funding haven't been included in the draft Clean Energy Future (carbon price) package.

Labor has said that that part of the carbon price legislation will be put to parliament NEXT year.

Are you worried about that? We sure are!

Make a submission about the carbon price legislation

In early August the government released their draft legislation on carbon price and have invited the general public and interested parties to comment on their proposed plans.
