Rewiring Australia is a non-profit, independent, non-partisan organisation dedicated to representing the people, households and communities in the energy system. We empirically demonstrate and communicate the cost savings, emissions reductions, and energy system benefits of electrification.
Rewiring Australia has reached millions of Australians with our work. We deliver practical climate progress by working with government, industry, and on the ground with communities to electrify everything.
There are four core pillars to our work:
