The National Energy Justice Coalition

The Next Economy | Impact area » Tackling Inequality

Australia’s transition from a system fuelled by fossilised energy to one powered by renewable energy gives rise to complex social and economic issues for marginalised groups such as low-income households, regional and remote communities, First Nations groups, and workers in the fossil fuel industry. These social aspects of the transition process have been largely overlooked by policymakers and planners. The Next Economy is bringing leading thinkers and practitioners together to form the National Energy Justice Coalition (NEJC). The NEJC will be tasked with putting justice at the centre of energy policy, investment, infrastructure development and systems. In developing an aligned vision, strategy and action plan to transform the energy system, the NEJC will raise public awareness of the wide range of energy justice issues across Australia and will identify the key opportunities for system-wide change.

The Next Economy is a national organisation working in the energy transition space, whose aim is to build economic systems that are good for both people and planet.
