The ANU Energy Change Institute and Climate Change Institute present an open public forum on 12 June on the Australian Government’s recently released 2020 Technology Investment Roadmap discussion paper.
The public forum is aimed at sharing a range of perspectives around the Roadmap’s discussion paper, which is open for public consultation until 21 June.
The discussion paper includes factors such as the “challenges, global trends and competitive advantages” of priority technologies, negative emissions, and ‘stretch’ goals including producing hydrogen for under $2 per kilogram.
We have assembled an expert panel across a wide range of backgrounds comprising:
Sophia Hamblin Wang (Director, CO2 Value Australia)
Dr Patrick Hartley (CSIRO Hydrogen Industry Mission)
Prof Frank Jotzo (ANU Crawford School of Public Policy)
Dr Elizabeth Ratnam (ANU Energy Change Institute)
Anna Skarbek (CEO, ClimateWorks Australia)
We’ll also be joined by senior officials from the Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources (DISER) from the team that led development of the Technology Investment Roadmap discussion paper.
The discussion will be chaired by ANU Energy Change Institute Director, Prof Ken Baldwin, and we will welcome your questions via the Zoom Q&A.
Sophia Hamblin Wang is a Director of CO2 Value Australia, an industry body whose mission is to promote the development and deployment of sustainable industrial solutions which transform captured CO2 into useful products. She’s an ANU graduate with a Bachelor of International Business (Honours), and has represented Australia at the first-ever UN Youth Climate Summit in New York, and was in January this year among 50 young people invited from around the world to attend the World Economic Forum in Davos.
Dr Patrick Hartley is the leader of CSIRO’s Hydrogen Industry Mission. He is responsible for developing the strategy, structure, operating model and partnerships which will underpin a major new national research initiative which is proposed for launch in mid-2020 which is focussed on delivering research, development and demonstration projects which enable the scaleup of Australia’s domestic and export hydrogen industries.
Prof Frank Jotzo is Director for the Centre for Climate and Energy Policy in the ANU Crawford School of Public Policy. As an environmental economist, his research focuses on policy for climate change and energy, in the context of economic reform and development. He’s a co-director of the Energy Transition Hub, joint editor-in-chief of the journal Climate Policy, and a Lead Author of Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change 5th and 6th Assessment Reports.
Dr Elizabeth Ratnam is a member of the ANU Energy Change Institute. She holds a Future Engineering Research Leader (FERL) Fellowship from the ANU and joined the Research School of Electrical, Energy and Materials Engineering as a research fellow and lecturer in 2018. Her research interests are in developing new paradigms to control distribution networks with a strong focus on creating a resilient carbon neutral power grid.
Anna Skarbek is CEO of ClimateWorks Australia, an entity within the Monash Sustainable Development Institute that works to bridge the gap between research and climate action, and accelerate the transition to net zero emissions in Australia, southeast Asia and the Pacific. She is also a non-executive Director of the Clean Energy Finance Corporation, and was a founding director from 2012 to 2017.
