The Brotherhood is a leading national voice on the impacts of climate change and climate policy on Australians with low incomes. We have developed our knowledge and influence through long-term engagement with low-income households, community organisations and all levels of government in research, advocacy and program development. In this work we develop solutions and advocate policies that improve social equity by building the capacity of low-income Australians to respond to climate change and implement effective climate change adaptation. We are increasingly concerned about the impact of rising energy prices on low-income and vulnerable households. Energy efficiency provides an essential means to reduce these households? exposure to rising prices. However, many lack the up-front capital to invest in efficiency upgrades. The Commonwealth Government has an important role to play in assisting low-income households to improve their energy efficiency and in unlocking the economy-wide benefits from energy efficiency. ; NATIONAL ENERGY SAVINGS INITIATIVE
