EnergyShift Tracking Poll: Wave 2

Download Submission

Executive summary

  • Voters strongly support a shift to renewable energy sources, and overwhelmingly prefer that any
    increase in electricity supply comes from solar or wind.
  • They are sceptical that Australia will meet its greenhouse gas emission targets, and less than half rate
    the performance of the Federal Government on the transition to renewable energy as good or very
    good.
  • However, they also prioritise cost and reliability of energy over emission reductions, and this has
    increased slightly since earlier in the year.
  • Additionally, Australians are not willing to pay more for renewable energy, with the preference for a
    shift to renewables almost completely elastic.
  • A small majority of voters supported an increase in the energy supplied from natural gas, which also
    saw the largest growth in support (for an increase in supply) over the past three months (at 57 per
    cent, up from 53 per cent at the start of the year).
  • Most voters say they support new gas projects if it means the faster retirement of coal fired power
    stations.
