Human induced regeneration: a spatiotemporal study

Human induced regeneration (HIR) is one of a suite of carbon capture initiatives known as ‘methods’ for creating carbon credits that is overseen by the Clean Energy Regulator (CER). The objective of this study is to develop a suitable methodology to assess the effectiveness of...

An everyman's guide for a landholder to participate in soil carbon farming in Australia

Soil carbon farming has been mooted as one of the key strategies for offsetting Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions. This paper explains in simple terms the procedures for a landholder to participate in the Australian government’s Emissions Reduction Fund.
Working paper

‘Clean’ hydrogen? An analysis of the emissions and costs of fossil fuel based versus renewable electricity based hydrogen

In this working paper, the authors argue that establishing hydrogen supply chains on the basis of fossil fuels, as many national strategies foresee, may be incompatible with decarbonisation objectives and raise the risk of stranded assets.

Reality check: why CSS has no role in Australia's energy system

This report responds to a request from the Australian Conservation Foundation to undertake a desk-top review of the cost of carbon capture and storage (CCS) applied to electricity generation in Australia. The analysis suggests carbon capture and storage is likely to cost at least six...

Energy technology perspectives 2020

A net-zero energy system requires a profound transformation in the way we produce and use energy that can only be achieved with a broad suite of technologies. This report examines in detail the role for carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) technologies in clean energy...

Dishing the dirt: Australia’s move to store carbon in soil is a problem for tackling climate change

The Morrison Government’s Technology Investment Roadmap identifies soil carbon as a potential way to reduce emissions from agriculture and to offset other emissions. However, the government’s plan contains misconceptions about the general effectiveness of soil carbon as an emissions reduction strategy.
Position paper

Technology Investment Roadmap: first low emissions technology statement - 2020

This technology statement is the first major milestone in the Technology Investment Roadmap. It tries to identify how emerging, low-emissions technologies might become economically competitive with and eventually replace high emission incumbents - but only with the assistance of additional federal funding.

Atmospheric carbon drawdown – a global imperative

Carbon sequestration is the general term used for the capture and long-term storage of carbon dioxide. This paper argues that a varied and tailored approach is likely to produce the most productive and the most resilient overall solution.

Fact Check: Greg Hunt not giving the full story on climate research

Opposition Climate spokesman Greg Hunt claims CSIRO research shows carbon emissions can be reduced by 20 per cent over 40 years using nature, soils and trees.

Net zero and beyond: what role for bioenergy with carbon capture and storage?

Policymakers are in danger of sleepwalking into ineffective carbon dioxide removal solutions in the quest to tackle climate change. This paper warns against overreliance on bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS).
