ABSTRACT
In this article, the author discusses the measures related to the proposed Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme (CPRS) in Australia. She considers the proliferation of overlapping/duplicating measures as public policy failure. For her, the emissions trading scheme's virtue is that the Government will avoid detailed business of greenhouse gas abatement. She explains that Energy Efficiency Opportunities program requires energy-intensive companies to accept evaluations and report to the Government.
