Industry association membership fees

Our memberships are utilised for a broad range of purposes across the organisation, including knowledge sharing, networking, promoting industry development, and policy advocacy. We also seek to work with other parties to provide a unified industry view on energy, climate change and related policies. In May 2020 AGL conducted a review of our Industry Associations memberships, the results of which can be found here.

  • ^AGL Energy paid the FY21 membership fees in FY22

  • During FY21, AGL Energy has made contributions to various (non-government) industry associations for work done on particular issues or projects. These contributions are not included above. In addition, the associations are not included above except where AGL Energy has also paid annual membership fees to them.

  • Due to the continuing integration of Click Energy Group Holdings Pty Ltd, some of their industry association memberships may not been included in this list. In addition, due to resource constraints, a small number of minor industry association memberships may not be included in the above list.

  • AGL Energy’s view may differ on some issues from the industry groups to which we belong. Where this occurs on material issues, we aim to ensure that stakeholders are aware of these differences of view.

  • During FY21, the key area where AGL Energy's views differed to those of the industry associations of which we are (or were) a member was climate change policy. There is general agreement among AGL Energy and our industry associations about the principles that should guide Australia’s greenhouse gas emission reduction targets and climate change policy framework. There is also general agreement that Australia’s climate change objectives are most efficiently managed at a national level, rather than by state governments developing jurisdictional targets and policies. There may, however, be some disagreement among these associations about the particular mechanisms to achieve these outcomes and the prioritisation of particular principles to guide the policy pathway, with different organisations prioritising industry competitiveness, the use of market-based mechanisms, accelerating the use of renewable energy, energy affordability, policy stability, or the integration of climate change and renewable energy policies. Most organisations agree that a sectoral approach for electricity generation is appropriate.

  • During FY21 there were no industry associations that AGL Energy chose not to renew its membership of on the basis of ongoing monitoring of the positions held by the industry association.
