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.

“We’re excited to announce that on the back of our recent 3-Year Strategic Review, the Energy Charter will place greater focus on cross-sector collaboration through our #BetterTogether initiatives to continue to deliver better outcomes for customers at a time of unprecedented change in the energy industry.”

Practical guidelines for co-existence between transmission infrastructure and agriculture to mitigate negative impacts and prioritise shared value through the energy transition. Bi-annual strategic roundtable with leaders from the energy and agriculture sectors will discuss strategic emerging issues in the energy transition, identify what’s working and areas for continuous improvement.

Knock before you Disconnect

A nationally consistent, customer-led approach to avoiding energy disconnections. Retailers, networks and community organisations will work together to hand deliver information to customers on where they can get support to keep their energy on. National trials have demonstrated that up to 80% of disconnections can be avoided through this human-centred approach.

Energy Charter signatory levels enable organisations across the energy sector including businesses, consumer and regulatory bodies, government agencies and industry organisations, to collaborate using the architecture of the Energy Charter and leverage high impact areas to deliver better outcomes for consumers and communities through our #BetterTogether initiatives.
