SEA is today delighted to release its policy position ahead of the Western Australian State Election on 09 March 2013.

CCA RET review pursues stability

SEA welcomes most of the recommendations from the Climate Change Authority in its report to the Minister today on the review of the Renewable Energy Target (RET).

The report has wisely resisted calls from the fossil fuel lobby to dilute support for the Renewable Energy Target and recommended that it be maintained at 41,000 GWh of renewable energy generation by 2020. Keeping a fixed generation target helps provide the policy stability that has long been sought by the renewable energy industry.

New climate agreement historic shift in principle, but still no ‘war’ on global warming

Australia's commitment, made with 36 other industrialised countries, for binding emission cuts by 2020 as part of a package of agreements that extends the life of the Kyoto Protocol at the UN COP18 in Doha, Qatar, has been welcomed by the Sustainable Energy Association of Australia (SEA).

The deal, agreed by 194 nations at the climate talks in Doha, extends the Kyoto Protocol to 2020, and prepares the way for the Kyoto protocol to be replaced by a new treaty binding all developed and developing nations together by 2015 to respond to climate change.

SEA members support a market-based approach to the pricing of carbon as a part of the response to tackle global warming.
