This study demonstrates that the adoption of gas demand reduction measures, such as energy efficiency and fuel switching entirely eliminates the forecast shortfall, with the exception of 2028 which has a minor 6.5PJ modelled shortfall.
Federal Energy Minister, Angus Taylor, wants Australia to have a ‘gas-fired recovery’. But how dirty is gas? And has its time as a ‘transition fuel’ already come and gone? This short report looks at the state of gas projects in Australia and its contribution to...

This report outlines the Climate Council’s response to the COVID-19 crisis. The report suggests that as Australia reboots its economy on the other side of this crisis, there is remarkable potential for that economic recovery to occur through climate action.
The benefits of gas-fired power are badly overstated, and will take Australia further in the wrong direction on climate change, writes Tim Baxter.
Runaway train: the impact of WA’s LNG industry on meeting our Paris targets and national efforts to tackle climate change
This report presents the first thorough investigation of direct carbon emissions from Western Australia’s Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) industry, revealing alarming growth in pollution that is placing Australia’s Paris Agreement targets in jeopardy.
If Australia is the biggest gas exporter in the world, why are we shipping it back in? Because the gas market is dysfunctional - and it means consumers are suffering.
The emissions produced from the fossil fuels extracted by Australia’s major gas, coal and oil producing companies, or ‘carbon majors’, are now larger than all of Australia’s domestic emissions. The discussion presented in this report outlines a way of thinking about the moral responsibility of...
This report explores how oil and gas companies are taking action to address climate change, how these actions fit with the overall needs of the energy transition, and whether there is more companies can do to contribute to the solution set of this problem.
