This inquiry examined the capacity and economic opportunities of renewable energy, including for workforces, industries and the wider economy impacted by COVID-19. It also covered trends in energy supply and exports, including investment and other financial arrangements, and effects on regional communities, water security, the...
This issue starts with an update in the NEEA estimate of changes in Australia’s total energy combustion emissions up to the end of June 2021. This is followed by a short section on recent trends in the emissions efficiency of new vehicles.
The reforms outlined in this strategy document reflect an industry consensus that was developed in close collaboration with government, industry and communities. Infrastructure Australia completed a comprehensive engagement program that targeted more than 6,500 community members and industry stakeholders across Australia’s cities and regions.
This publication provides comprehensive information on and analysis of New Zealand's energy supply, demand and prices.
Due to their unique size and position in the grid, community-scale batteries have the potential to play an integral role in Australia’s transition to a decentralised grid. This research reveals enthusiasm for storage of this scale and outlines the considerations needed for the practical deployment...
New energy technologies are coming to market faster than regulatory frameworks can adapt, exposing users (and non-users) to new forms of risks and costs. This report considers the implications associated with ‘responsibilising’ householders for new types of involvement in the energy system.
This paper argues that the new role for renewable energy systems will demand a rapid transformation in the global battery industry. Battery demand is expected to increase dramatically in coming years, as a greater share of renewables in the energy mix requires significant build-out of...
Beyond the comparison with other countries, this paper indicates that Australia’s so-called ‘gas-fired economic recovery’ runs absolutely counter to the needs of Australia’s energy system transition, and would worsen, not improve, Australia’s emissions reduction performance.
This report examines the financial performance of commercial-scale solar in New Zealand by modelling systems for 144 business sites across eight centres.
The establishment of a hydrogen Guarantee of Origin (GO), or certification scheme, is a priority action under Australia’s national hydrogen strategy. This paper outlines methodologies for guaranteeing the origin of clean hydrogen from three main production pathways: electrolysis, coal gasification with carbon capture and storage...
