Energy Sector Publications
Australia can become a renewable energy superpower: a well-grounded vision for a prosperous Australia. Get a copy. We have the advantages of: enormous amounts of high-quality solar and wind resources, a widespread electricity distribution grid, a skilled workforce and industry sector, capable research organisations: universities and the CSIRO, proximity to large and growing Asian markets […]
This “Renewable Energy Superpower Report” is part of the overall “Zero Carbon Australia Plan”
Australia has a rapidly closing window of opportunity to become a renewable energy superpower. To grasp this once-off opportunity, Australia needs to act with urgency on our Zero Carbon Australia plan, or similar.
The plan is to provide 100% of Australia’s electricity from renewables, using mostly wind and solar generators, geographically dispersed around an improved national grid. It allows for electricity demand in 2020 to be 40% greater than in 2008, sufficient to replace all fossil fuel use, including heating and transport as they move to electricity. The plan […]
This “Stationary Energy Plan” is part of the overall “Zero Carbon Australia Plan”
Port Augusta is a town at a crossroads. Two coal-fired power stations have closed, and people are deciding how to replace them: with Australia’s first “solar thermal plants” or a “combined cycle fossil gas plant”. The Repower Port Augusta Alliance has developed a solid proposal to replace the coal plants with 6 solar thermal plants […]
This BZE 2012 proposal won some funding in 2017: $650 million! BZE is a small organisation that punches far above its weight.
This “Repower Port Augusta Plan” is part of the overall “Zero Carbon Australia Plan”
