Description

This paper focuses on issues around the rapid deployment of renewables in Australia as an essential part of a cost-efficient transition to a net-zero emissions economy.

In this report, the Australian-German Energy Transition Hub presents a range of scenarios in which Australia uses its extensive renewable resources to:

1) secure a reliable and cost-effective domestic electricity supply 

2) avoid CO2 emissions, leading to carbon neutrality by 2050

3) move beyond domestic supply to become a first mover and supplier in future global markets of green hydrogen.

The scenarios are simulated in four energy-economic models of complementary scope and detail.

This is one paper in a series of four as part of the Energy Transition Hub's Synthesis Reports.  To view other reports in this series, please see the related content section below.
