Senator ALLISON (3:33 AM) —by leave—I move Democrat amendments (7) and (8) on sheet 2660 revised:

(7) Schedule 1, page 34 (after line 16), at the end of Part 1, add:

152A At the end of paragraph 162(1)(a)

Add:

(iii) stimulated the development of an internationally competitive renewable energy industry; and

(iv) resulted in the optional use of renewable energy resources in Australia; and

(8) Schedule 1, page 34 (after line 16), at the end of Part 1, add:

152B At the end of paragraph 162(1)(h)

Add “and continuing to increase the targets beyond 2010; and

(i) the degree to which the operation of the Act impacts on the effectiveness of other measures that support renewable energy development;”.

These amendments require the review of the act to look at a couple of additional matters, namely: whether it has stimulated the development of an internationally competitive renewable energy industry, which the government is arguing that it wants; whether it has resulted in the optimal use of renewable energy resources in Australia; the overall level of the target; and the degree to which the operation of the act impacts on the effectiveness of other measures that support renewable energy development.
