Energy

(Question No. 892)


Mr Keogh asked the Minister for the Environment and Energy, in writing, on 06 December 2017:

What sum was spent on advertising of the National Energy Guarantee policy (a) Australia wide, (b) in Western Australia, and (c) in the Perth Metropolitan Area, (i) on television, (ii) in newspapers, (iii) online, and (iv) in any social media sponsored or boosted posts.


Mr Frydenberg: The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

A reference to the proposed National Energy Guarantee was included in national television advertising for one week in November 2017 as part of the Australian Government's Powering Forward campaign.

This advertisement had a limited run on Perth metropolitan and regional television.

At the time of the honourable member's question, there was no advertising of the National Energy Guarantee in any other national or Western Australian media or social media.

The Powering Forward campaign aims to raise awareness of and engagement in national energy policy reform, and to help consumers access more affordable and reliable energy in their homes and businesses.

Details of the campaign, which is still under way, will be provided in the 2017-18 Annual Reports of the Department of the Environment and Energy and the Department of Finance.
