It was pleasure to address the Committee for Melbourne breakfast this morning and discuss the transition underway in the Australian energy market. The Committee’s hard work contributes to maintaining Melbourne’s status as one of the world’s most liveable cities.

Remembrance Day Service

On Remembrance Day we honour more than 102,000 Australians who have died serving our country. It is important we keep their memory alive and also keep in our thoughts the servicemen and women who are currently serving in our armed forces. I was honoured to represent the Prime Minister at the Remembrance Day Service at the Shrine of Remembrance in Melbourne. We will remember them. 











Bialik College visits Parliament House

It was great to share Australian Parliament House with the year 6 students from Bialik College on Wednesday 9 November. They enjoyed experiencing Question Time and exploring Parliament House. Bialik College is my old school and I have such great memories from those days. 


Australian Sustainable Built Environment Council Address

On Tuesday I addressed the Australian Sustainable Built Environment Council Annual General Meeting, where I discussed the important role the built environment can make to meeting our 2030 Paris emission reduction targets. The Government through our National Energy Productivity Plan, which aims to improve energy productivity by 40 per cent, will reduce costs and emissions from the built environment. The Government has already expanded the Commercial Building Disclosure Programme, which will provided an estimated $50 million in new energy savings.



Paris Agreement Ratification

On 10 November, I was pleased to join the Prime Minister and Foreign Minister in announcing that Australia had ratified the Paris Agreement on Climate Change and the Doha Amendment to the Kyoto Protocol.  Australia joins more than 100 other countries in ratifying the Paris Agreement.  Our emissions reduction target of 26 to 28 per cent on 2005 levels by 2030 is ambitious and responsible.  I am pictured below with the Prime Minister and Foreign Minister.



Energy Networks Association's Annual Dinner

Last night I addressed the Energy Networks Association's Annual Dinner. With COP 22 underway in Marrakesh, I outlined how Australia's climate polices are enabling the electricity sector to transition to a lower emissions future. But, with the recent blackout in South Australia and the announced closure of Hazelwood, I emphasised energy security must remain our number one priority.



CEO Forum of the Australian Energy Council and Energy Networks Association

Today I met with the chief executive officers of Australia’s energy industry at the CEO Forum of the Australian Energy Council and Energy Networks Association at Parliament House. It was an important opportunity to meet with the leaders of Australia’s energy industry and discuss the transition taking place in Australia’s energy system. The discussion covered the COAG Energy Council reform agenda, harmonisation of state based renewable energy targets and the imperative of delivering a secure, reliable and affordable energy supply as this transition to lower emissions energy occurs. 


Kew Baptist Church 160th anniversary

On Sunday 6 November I joined Senior Pastor Nick Tuohy and Pastor Khoi Doan at Kew Baptist Church for the Church's 160th anniversary celebrations. During my visit I inspected Highbury Common, the new vegetable garden made possible through Federal Government's Stronger Communities Program, addressed congregants and viewed some wonderful old photos found among cobwebs. Kew Baptist Church has a rich history of providing support to the local community and it was great to see so many locals at the anniversary festivities. The Church conducts services for its wide range of congregants including the Vietnamese community as well as a night church for youth and services at Karana Baptist Aged Care and provides monthly outreach services to Servants Community Housing in Hawthorn.





Launch of Access Health and Community

I had the privilege of speaking and cutting the ribbon at the official launch of Access Health and Community at the Hawthorn Arts Centre on 4 November 2016.
 
Access Health and Community (AccessHC) has been created as a result of a recent merger of three health not-for-profit organisations, formerly known as Inner East Community Health Service, Manningham Community Health Service and Biala Box Hill Early Childhood Intervention Centre. 

With 260 staff and 300 volunteers the organisation has a mission to deliver access to all in the community with a focus on the disadvantage, providing primary healthcare services GP, nursing, allied health, dental, alcohol and other drug support, programs, as well as child and family services.






Australian Government to Support Hazelwood Workers

Today I announced that the Federal Government will deliver $43 million to support Hazelwood Power Station workers and Victoria’s Latrobe Valley following the closure of the facility at the end of March 2017.

The support will include $20 million in support for local infrastructure, $3 million to help employees and a $20 million Regional Jobs and Investment Package to help create local jobs and growth, build a highly skilled local workforce, take advantage of export opportunities and diversify the regional economy.
