The business agreements are approved by decision of the Fair Work Commission (FWC) and published on the FWC website.

The Australian government is ensuring that Australians have access to a more affordable, reliable and safer energy supply through a series of initiatives that support critical transport projects, production projects and batteries. These measures will support Australia`s energy transition at a time of significant change and support COVID-19`s economic recovery efforts. The Australian government will provide the Western Australian Government (AV) with two Commonwealth grants, which will be part of a state energy and emissions reduction agreement with the VA. Grants include $13.5 million for an VA-based microgrid program for remote communities, which will help the VA government expand an existing solution program in remote Aboriginal communities and regional cities. This will support economic development and provide infrastructure to promote energy security and reliability. The Australian government will develop a policy framework for a minimum storage requirement. This requires the fuel industry to maintain fuel and nozzle reserves at their current levels and increase diesel inventories, with refineries expected to retain only current inventories. This framework includes the design and negotiation of a market system that provides refineries with an additional revenue stream reflecting their fuel safety and value for Australia`s utility capacity. This will allow us to build additional diesel batteries and high-capacity fuel, which will improve our resilience to supply shocks.

This involves the work of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) Gas Industry Social and Environmental Research Alliance (GISERA), which is a cooperation between the CSIRO, the Australian government, state and territory governments and industry. The Australian government is investing in new and emerging technologies that support jobs, strengthen our economy and reduce emissions. A package of measures will encourage increased productivity and competitiveness, develop clean technology industries and create jobs in targeted industries and regions. It will support the government`s technology-based approach by accelerating the next generation of energy technologies and accelerating emissions reductions in hard-to-reduce economic sectors, such as transportation, industry and agriculture.
