Government touts clean energy achievements
The Federal Government has released a new interactive online map which shows the extent of investment in clean energy projects around the country under the Clean Energy Future package.
The Clean Energy Map shows over 1200 projects which are actively cutting greenhouse gas emissions while boosting the economy by reducing energy costs, investing in new technologies and creating new jobs.
Federal Minister for Industry and Innovation, Greg Combet, said that the map shows the clear and concise effect the investment in clean energy is having.
"The Clean Energy Map shows there is widespread action around the country to tackle climate change and invest in renewable energy," Mr Combet said.
"Manufacturers are using carbon price revenue to invest in new equipment ranging from cogeneration plants to new refrigeration technologies, delivering significant cost savings.
"Community organisations, local councils and households are engaged in projects to use energy more efficiently and cost-effectively.
