The Energy Charter is a unique coalition of like-minded energy organisations with a shared purpose and passion for customers and communities.
Energy customers rely on all of us. We all use energy every day. It lights our homes and powers businesses. We’re all part of the same ecosystem, so working #BetterTogether is vital now and into the future.
Our purpose is to empower one another across the energy supply chain to deliver better energy outcomes for customers and communities. Our vision is that together, we can create a better energy future for all Australians.
For us, the opportunity is to keep humans at the centre of the design and delivery of energy solutions; to navigate the changing needs of customers and communities as we transform to a cleaner energy future.
There really is no other collaboration like us; and the work we do, together, has never been more important than it is today.
We are #BetterTogether.
Energy Charter Principles
In 2018, a number of Australian energy businesses across the supply chain came together with consumer and customer representatives to develop the Energy Charter. They recognised that better customer outcomes required a whole of sector response. The development of the Energy Charter was a collaborative process with consumer and customer representatives sharing critical perspectives and insights. The Energy Charter was officially launched on 31 January 2019.
Signing up to the Energy Charter is voluntary. We welcome all individuals and organisations in the energy sector including energy businesses, consumer and community representatives, regulatory bodies, government agencies and industry organisations to collaborate using the architecture of the Energy Charter.
