Guess who supports Labor's key climate change action policy.

Under Labor, electricity generation will be covered by a “cap” on carbon pollution that reflects a proportional share of the overall emissions reduction task set for the broader ETS. Each generator will be allocated a baseline that is calculated according to a sector-wide emissions intensity baseline.

Labor will implement the model proposed by the Australian Energy Market Commission for electricity generators. This scheme provides for a fully internal market in carbon, which according to the AEMC will operate “without a significant effect on absolute price levels faced by consumers”.

Labor recognises that the electricity sector is unique to the economy, and so this package of measures has been structured to best meet our climate change targets in the most efficient way. Labor has designed policy settings to strengthen energy security, apply downward pressure on power prices, and drive the transition to clean sources of power.
