External Research

 

With CUAC’s establishment in 2002, a Grants Program was created to support a range of organisations to continue to undertake energy and water consumer research and advocacy. Since 2002, CUAC has provided funding of over $1.3 million to more than 90 consumer, welfare and environment group projects.

Over time, a reduced public reserve and the availability of energy consumer advocacy funding through the Consumer Advocacy Panel led CUAC to restructure and scale down the Grants Program. In 2009-10, an in-depth review evaluated the program’s strengths, weaknesses and governance and investigated alternative models. Based on the review’s findings and recommendations, the CUAC Board decided to adopt a new, more flexible approach to its Research & Advocacy Program.

A selection of reports funded through CUAC’s Grants Program is available below. We are happy to provide you with a copy of any other CUAC-funded reports. Please contact us with your request.
