This report shows just how much solar energy could benefit Victorian high schools. If a 100kW solar system was installed in all of the 418 Victorian public high schools, the results would be game-changing.
This analysis of the latest clean energy data suggests that despite the policy turmoil, renewable energy investment is going to continue to soar in Australia.
This report summarises key findings from case studies in six countries (China, India, Poland, Germany, Australia and South Africa), exploring pathways to implement coal transitions.
Coal production in Australia is likely to be on a long-term declining trajectory. Export demand is a function of economic, technological and policy developments in other countries, all of which point to the likelihood of falling coal use over time, especially for steam coal.
Countries around the world are under increasing pressure to decarbonise their economies. There is growing interest in the production and use of hydrogen as a potential scalable and versatile mechanism for achieving this aim. If the global demand for hydrogen increases as a consequence, then...
Despite the historic inaccuracy of electricity demand and price forecasting, even in the absence of significant policy change, once again economic modelling is being used to make forecasts about the impact of changes in energy policy on the long run price of electricity in Australia....
Amid a flurry of reports comes the information we need for real progress — and some sobering data.
This occasional paper provides an overview of energy storage technologies already in Australia and on the horizon, and the opportunities for Australia to lead the world in these fields.
Fuel poverty is a fact of life for 2.5 million households across England. At its worst, fuel poverty can contribute to premature winter deaths – around 10,000 deaths in 2016–2017 were related to cold homes.
This report sets out recommendations by the commission to improve the economic regulation applied to full and light regulation transmission and distribution gas pipelines. If implemented in full, the package of recommendations will assist pipeline users and prospective users to negotiate lower prices and better...
A conversation with Energy Program Director, Tony Wood. Energy has become one of the great barbecue-stoppers of Australia. Electricity and gas bills are soaring, energy supplies seem to be less reliable than they used to be, and if you really want to start an argument...
This edition of the National Energy and Emissions Audit shows that the National Electricity Market (NEM) is transitioning to renewable energy despite political and policy uncertainty.
This report intends to be a guide to assist the decision-makers in cities that recognise the challenges of food waste management and wish to find sustainable and effective solutions.
The AEMC Reliability Panel has published the final report for its four yearly ‘check in’ of the reliability standard and settings for the National Electricity Market. The panel found the current reliability standard and settings should be extended to 2024.
This report confirms that while conditions in the east coast gas market have improved since September 2017, the market is still not functioning effectively.
Renewable energy needs to be scaled up at least six times faster for the world to start to meet the goals set out in the Paris Agreement. The historic climate accord from 2015 seeks, at minimum, to limit average global temperature rise to “well below...
This discussion paper highlights the need for understanding the ultimate impact on electricity prices when making any changes to how transmission infrastructure is planned, built and operated.
The AEMC has released this consultation paper on a proposed rule change from AEMO to improve the transparency and consistency of information AEMO provides to signal whether or not electricity supply is projected to meet demand in the medium-term.
In September 2016, the Northern Territory Government announced a moratorium on hydraulic fracturing (fracking) of onshore unconventional reservoirs, including the use of hydraulic fracturing for exploration, extraction and production. This was followed by the announcement of an independent Scientific Inquiry into Hydraulic Fracturing of Onshore...
