The Australian Energy Regulator will be responsible for ensuring that electricity retailers comply with carbon emission reduction targets under the Federal Government’s National Energy Guarantee. The new energy policy also requires electricity retailers to meet reliability standards.

Former prime minister Tony Abbott maintains that the energy policy should not include an emissions reduction target.
