No easy choices: which way to Australia’s energy future?
Andrew Charlton, a former senior economic adviser to Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and an Australian representative at the 2009 UN climate change conference in Copenhagen, spoke with Energy Program Director Tony Wood at the launch of Grattan’s report, No easy choices: which way to Australia’s energy future?
The report is the first of two on the technology choices that will frame Australia’s energy future. It explores in detail the seven technologies that might enable Australia to achieve the targets set out in the Federal Government’s Clean Energy Legislation for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. It considers the case for government intervention beyond the carbon tax and R&D support.
