The Community EmPOWERment project was established by the Moreland Energy Foundation Limited (MEFL) and the research undertaken by the Institute for Sustainable Futures (the Institute). The full title of the project is Improving Demand Management Choices for Small Customers in the National Electricity Market (NEM). The National Consumers Electricity Advocacy Panel (NCEAP) and the Consumer Utilities Advocacy Centre (CUAC) funded the research. A research working group was established to oversee the development of project, involving Jim Wellsmore from Public Interest Advocacy Centre in NSW and Andrew Nance from SACOSS. The primary objectives of the research were to investigate the social influences on household electricity consumption, improve understanding of barriers to demand management at the household level and identify promising policy actions to allow householders to better manage their electricity use. A secondary objective was to educate householders on practical actions that they can take to reduce their electricity bills.
