Reliable, affordable, clean energy will underpin decarbonisation of the global economy. That’s why at the COP26 international climate conference in Glasgow there is a strong focus on accelerating the move away from emissions-intensive energy sources. Or, as British Prime Minister Boris Johnson says, ‘consigning coal to history’.
In this special Grattan Institute Webinar in partnership with the UK Government, experts will map the path to global clean energy, and unpack the challenges and opportunities for Australia.
The first panel in this two-part event will identify the changes needed to Australia’s energy grid to phase-out unabated coal-fired power – and what those changes will mean for regulators, producers, and consumers. The second panel will examine how the changes to global energy markets will affect Australia’s energy exports – and the opportunities for Australia that those changes will bring.
