Industry association membership fees

Our memberships are utilised for a broad range of purposes across the organisation, including knowledge sharing, networking, promoting industry development, and policy advocacy. We also seek to work with other parties to provide a unified industry view on energy, climate change and related policies. In May 2020 AGL conducted a review of our Industry Associations memberships, the results of which can be found here.

Notes

  • ^AGL paid the FY20 membership fees in FY21

  • *AGL has decided that it will not be renewing its membership of these industry associations for FY21. This decision is based on the findings of a recent review of its Industry Association memberships that was completed in May 2020. A copy of the Summary Report of the review can be found here.

  • During FY20, AGL has made contributions to various (non-government) industry associations for work done on particular issues or projects. These contributions are not included above. In addition, the associations are not included above except where AGL has also paid annual membership fees to them.

  • Due to the continuing integration of Perth Energy and Southern Phone Company, their industry association memberships have not been included in this list. In addition, due to resource constraints, a small number of minor industry association memberships may not be included in the above list.

  • AGL’s view may differ on some issues from the industry groups to which we belong. Where this occurs on material issues, we aim to ensure that stakeholders are aware of these differences of view.

  • During FY20, the key area where AGL's views differed to those of the industry associations of which we are (or were) a member was climate change policy. There is general agreement among AGL and our industry associations about the principles that should guide Australia’s greenhouse gas emission reduction targets and climate change policy framework. There is also general agreement that Australia’s climate change objectives are most efficiently managed at a national level, rather than by state governments developing jurisdictional targets and policies. There may, however, be some disagreement among these associations about the particular mechanisms to achieve these outcomes and the prioritisation of particular principles to guide the policy pathway, with different organisations prioritising industry competitiveness, the use of market-based mechanisms, accelerating the use of renewable energy, energy affordability, policy stability, or the integration of climate change and renewable energy policies. Most organisations agree that a sectoral approach for electricity generation is appropriate.
