The Federal government's First Nations Clean Energy Strategy 'Consultation Paper' received 90 submissions which are now published on their website.

Following roundtables conducted throughout 2023, the Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water’s ‘Consultation Paper’ was the next step in the development of the First Nations Clean Energy Strategy.

The government invited submissions on a number of goals and objectives, underpinned by 5 guiding principles:

  • Access to reliable clean energy is a human right

  • First Nations peoples will self-determine how they lead, participate in and benefit from the clean energy transformation

  • First Nations peoples are stewards and Custodians of Country, their connection is ongoing and enduring

  • Cultural heritage should be recognised, protected and celebrated

  • Everyone is responsible for building genuine partnerships and collaboration, underpinned by monitoring and reporting
