Consultation period on draft report begins

An independent review of the Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards Act 2012 (GEMS Act) is underway to ensure the Act remains appropriate and effective.  

The review’s draft report demonstrates that the GEMS Act has proven effective at reducing costs for consumers and contains a number of recommendations to strengthen the operation of the Act.

The Government encourages stakeholders to continue to participate in this independent review by making a submission on the draft report.

Written submissions, with cover sheet, are due by 5:00pm AEDT Friday 21 December 2018.
