The Energy Charter
We are working together with our industry counterparts from across the electricity and gas supply chain to develop a customer charter to that supports the shift to delivering energy in line with community and customer expectations.
The goal of the charter is to encourage the energy industry to work together to deliver energy for a better Australia, and to clearly outline what good conduct for the energy industry looks like. This is also the first whole of sector initiative to address customer expectations.
