Energy policies to see us through the 80's - Victorian government policy

Australia is much better off than most industrialised countries in its energy resources. Our major weakness is in the area of our transport fuels. The Victorian government, in March 1979, issued its "energy policy for Victoria" statement in which it laid down a programme to achieve its objectives, especially concentrating on solutions to the long run problems of liquid fuels conservation and alternative supply. The Victorian government is keenly aware of the need for coordinated Australia wide energy policies and fully supports the efforts of the Australian Minerals and Energy Council (AMEC). The Victorian government is fully aware that our present high standard of living is conditional on the availability of adequate supplies of energy. One way to make our energy supplies last longer is to practise conservation and this aspect is stressed in the government's energy policy statement (a).
