Energy Efficiency Opportunities?: Submission to the Senate
ENERGY FORUM PAPER
At a time when the Government has just launched its Task Force to reduce the regulation on business, it is simultaneously introducing new measures like the Energy Efficiency Opportunities Bill which will needlessly intensify that regulation.
It is an unfortunate commentary on the efficiency of government that no conflict is apparently recorded in the simultaneous pursuit of goals that on the one hand seek to reduce the impost government has on business efficiency and on the other seek to impose a greater impact. It is even more regrettable that the increased regulatory activities require firms to take measures in their own interests on matters and in ways in which the government itself has scant information.
