Our research is showing that Australia can rapidly move to a zero carbon emissions economy.  We can become a renewable energy superpower, grasping a secure and prosperous future. View a brief overview of our plans for this transition.

Beyond Zero Emissions is having impact, for example: (1) Our 2012 report, Repowering Port Augusta, and our advocacy eventually led to the 2017 $680 million contract for a solar thermal plant in South Australia, and (2) BZE has been ranked as one of the best independent think tanks in the world, by the Lauder Institute in Pennsylvania USA.
