ANU Energy Green Paper Forum

Industry, government and academic experts convenes to dissect the Energy Green Paper and discuss policy options for Australia's energy future.

Registration is required. Please click on this link to register.

The Energy Green Paper, scheduled for imminent release, is designed to set out a policy framework for Australia’s energy future.

How will it address the complex challenges to the current energy system? What options will be considered to optimise the supply and use of energy resources to meet demand, improve energy efficiency and, at the same time, keep energy prices low? How will the national energy markets cope with paradigm shifts in the supply and delivery of energy from competing sources?

To answer some of these questions, the ANU Energy Change Institute will convene a panel of experts from industry, government and academia to dissect the Energy Green Paper. The panel will discuss the key topics vital to a resilient and sustainable energy future, identify the strengths and weaknesses of the various policy frameworks, and explore possible recommendations.

Members of the Energy White Paper Task Force from the Department of Industry will be attending the forum.

Lunch will be provided and talk is followed by drinks and refreshments
