Getting off gas: the case for all-electric homes in Australia - Podcast

Many Australians use gas for cooking, heating, and hot showers. But Australia won’t hit its net zero emissions target by 2050 unless it gets off gas. To do this, we need to move our homes to efficient electric appliances.

Listen to the authors of Grattan’s latest report, Getting off gas: why, how, and who should pay?, discuss why, how, and who should pay for this change. Featuring Tony Wood, Energy and Climate Change Program Director, Alison Reeve, Deputy Program Director, and Esther Suckling, Associate.
