National Energy Transition Authority Bill 2022
Energy transition is essential for Australia to maximise the benefits of a zero-emissions economy - such as the $333 billion green export opportunity identified in our Export Powerhouse report (almost triple the value of 2019 fossil fuel exports). If established, the National Energy Transition Authority may be interested in our most recent report, Deploy, which outlines the scale of available technology required to transition Australia to 100% renewable energy by 2030. We will soon be releasing a follow-up report which focuses on the holistic development of a National Supergrid, infrastructure that is essential to support the energy transition, including transmission, firming/storage, distribution, system security and equitable access.
As current fossil fuel communities and workforces are a core responsibility of the Authority, within this consultation we recommend in particular:
Expansion of Capacity Investment Scheme a welcome step forward but more needs to be done
There are further opportunities to keep energy costs down for households and drive Australian manufacturing.
Australia can capture niche battery markets
Australia can create a battery manufacturing industry targeting Australia’s grid and heavy vehicle battery markets.
Further resources for Australia’s decarbonisation pathway
How batteries for energy storage and electric vehicles can greatly cut Australia's emissions
National Supergrid is a five-year grid investment program - the foundation of Australia's renewable energy future.
