I am pleased to present the Clean Energy Regulator Corporate Plan for 2017-18 to 2020-21 which will guide our efforts over the next four years.
The direction outlined in this plan builds on the foundations of a well-established agency that has a proven track record and solid reputation with clients, industry and across government. This Corporate Plan outlines who we are, what we will do, and how we will measure our performance in achieving our purpose of accelerating carbon abatement for Australia over the life of the plan.
As a regulator our focus will continue to be on our clients and ensuring they comply with their obligations and are able to access the incentives afforded to them under our schemes. By taking a consistent and targeted approach to non-compliance we will ensure that the objectives of the schemes are met. We will invest in tools for the benefit of our clients and to enable us to deploy our resources more effectively to areas of high risk. This will be supported by the further development of our data analytics and sharing capability to leverage greater value from our datasets for the enhanced administration of our schemes, understanding of our clients and operation of the markets.
As an agency we need to ensure that we remain flexible and agile to allow us to quickly respond to changes in our operating environment. This is particularly relevant given the dynamic changes taking place in energy markets and climate change action. We will continue to invest in our staff to ensure that we build the right capability and organisational culture we need into the future.
Our strength lies in administering our schemes, harnessing our data and in dealing with our clients, all of which is underpinned by our ability to work closely with our wide range of partners-such as the Department of the Environment and Energy and other portfolio agencies, state and territory regulators and industry groups.
I would like to express my thanks and appreciation to Ms Chloe Munro for her leadership in guiding the agency from its inception and establishing it as an institution of high repute and capability during her term as Chair. I would also like to thank Ms Jody Swirepik who served as Chair immediately prior to my commencement and made the transition as seamless as possible.
I have joined the agency at an exciting time for the energy and climate change arenas as we look to continue to accelerate carbon abatement beyond 2020. I look forward to working alongside agency staff and with our Minister, stakeholders and clients to deliver the priorities outlined in this plan.
