Energy Policy – where do the parties stand?
Our society is dependent upon abundant sources of energy – liquid fuels, gas and electricity – for its continued prosperity. However, energy policy is a controversial area: from imposing a cost on greenhouse gas emissions from electricity generators, through the role able to be played by renewables, to Australia’s petroleum fuel security, questions and arguments abound.
This forum is designed to allow you to question the candidates about their party’s energy policies.
Please come armed with questions!
Forum presented and convened by: ATA Tas North Branch
A not-for-profit organisation promoting renewable energy, sustainable building and water conservation.

Proudly supported by the University of Tasmania
Candidates for the three main parties will briefly describe their party’s energy policy, then answer your questions. The speakers will be:
• Labor Party: Mr Geoff Lyons MHR, Member for Bass
• Greens Party: either Senator Peter Whish-Wilson or the Greens candidate for Bass
• Liberal Party: Mr Andrew Nikolic, endorsed candidate for Bass.
Will this be a debate? No. We don’t want to hear the candidates arguing amongst themselves, we want them to answer your questions. Each candidate will have their own timeslot to speak and answer your questions.
6:00 pm to 6:30 pm Mr Geoff Lyons MHR on the Labor Party’s energy policy. Most of this time will be devoted to answering your questions.
6:30 pm to 7:00 pm Senator Peter Whish-Wilson (or the endorsed Greens candidate for Bass) on the Greens Party’s energy policy. Most of this time will be devoted to answering your questions.
7:00 pm to 7:30 pm Mr Andrew Nikolic on the Liberal Party’s energy policy. Most of this time will be devoted to answering your questions.
