The Zero Carbon Australia Plan shows in detail how every sector of the Australian economy can move to zero emissions within 10 years using off-the-shelf, cost-effective technologies.
BZE has collaborated with research partners and private philanthropic foundations for over ten years to create this.
The Zero Carbon Australia Plan is made up of a series of research publications:
- The Stationary Energy Plan (2010)
- The Buildings Plan (2013)
- The Transport Plan
- The Land Use: Agriculture and Forestry Discussion Paper(2014)
- The Renewable Energy Superpower Report (2015)
- The Industry Plan
- Rethinking Cement (August 2017)
- Renewable Heat (expected 2018)
- Zero Carbon Steel (expected 2018).
Zero Carbon Australia Guiding Principles
The principals we have used in developing these plans are to:
- Provide Australia’s entire energy from renewable sources at the end of the transition period,
- Employ only proven and scaleable technology which is already commercially available,
- Maintain or enhance the security and reliability of Australia’s energy supply,
- Maintain or enhance food and water security,
- Maintain or enhance the high standard of living currently enjoyed by Australians,
- Maintain or enhance social equity, and
- Maintain other environmental indices.
