Economics & Deregulation / Energy

Energy is a vital area of the Australian economy, but it is constantly threatened by regulation and taxation. The Institute of Public Affairs examines the regulatory framework governing the energy sector and shows how deregulation can ensure that firms are given every opportunity to operate efficiently and that consumers receive the full benefits of a deregulated energy market. Environmental policies are also likely to challenge the vitality of this important sector.

The IPA also runs the Energy Forum, which brings together firms in the electricity and gas supply industry, all of which share a common view that privatisation and minimal levels of regulation will best serve the community. It provides a platform on which major industry leaders can test their views and subject them to informed criticism. Energy Forum papers are available here. For more information about the Energy Forum, please contact Alan Moran.

Competition in Climate Science

IPA REVIEW ARTICLE | Jennifer Marohasy

Climate Change - In Search of a Signal

IPA REVIEW ARTICLE | Stewart Franks
