This paper uses household survey data from Australia to investigate whether renters face larger energy bills than otherwise similar households. The findings cast light on the potential for more ambitious policy responses to reduce energy-related disadvantages faced by renters in Australia.
This paper investigates three pathways by which Australia could export zero-carbon energy and products: direct exports of renewable electricity via sub-sea cables, exports of zero-carbon fuels (such as green hydrogen), and the export of 'green' metals processed from Australian ores using renewable energy.
In this paper, the authors use a longitudinal dataset for 142 countries to estimate the contribution of carbon pricing to reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. They employ econometric techniques that control for other relevant factors, including other policies such as feed-in tariffs and renewable portfolio...
