Energy Concept for an Environmentally Sound, Reliable and Affordable Energy Supply

The Federal Government’s Energy Concept for an Environmentally Sound, Reliable and Affordable Energy Supply sets out a long-term energy strategy to 2050 that will provide an environmentally sound, reliable and affordable energy supply. Scientifically-tested monitoring every three years, to be published. Methodology is to be established. It includes the following targets: Reduce emissions to 40% below 1990 levels by 2020; to 55% by 2030; to 70% by 2040 and to 80–95% by 2050.

Quantified targets

1 million electric vehicles in use by 2020; then 6 million by 2030

Transportation | Renewable Energy | Trajectory Target | Base year: 2020, 2030

18% final energy from renewables by 2020, then 30% by 2030, 45% by 2040, 60% by 2050

Energy | Renewable Energy | Trajectory Target | Base year: 2020, 2030, 2040, 2050

10% cut in electricity consumption, then 25% by 2020, 2050 against a 2008 baseline

Energy | Energy Efficiency | Base Year Target | Base year: 2008

40% cut in GHG emissions by 2020; 55% by 2030; 70% by 2040; then 80-95% by 2050 - against a 1990 baseline
