About the Energy charter

Together, deliver
energy for a better

The Energy Charter is a national CEO-led collaboration that supports the energy sector towards a customer-centric future.  Our core values of “Be invested, make a difference”, “Be open, learn and improve”, and “Think big, be bold” are brought to life through #BetterTogether initiatives focused on delivering better customer outcomes for all Australians.


“During 2020 many energy consumers faced new challenges due to bushfires, floods and COVID-19. I’m honoured to take on the role of the Chair of the CEO Council so that the Energy Charter can continue to push for collaboration right across the industry to ensure better outcomes and support for energy customers during 2021.”

National Customer Code

The National Customer Code for Energy Brokers, Consultants and Retailers aims to give large customers confidence that we are working together in their best interests and delivering value to them.

COVID-19 Customer Support

The energy sector has come together to help keep Australia’s power going and provide support to people and businesses impacted by COVID-19. This means energy retailers, with the backing of the rest of the industry, offer customers’ assistance suited to their needs. 


The #BetterTogether initiatives have been co-designed by signatories through an innovation framework of ‘ideate, incubate and accelerate’ to build capacity for collaboration across the energy sector and deliver better customer outcomes for all Australians.
