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:
Shared infrastructure for clean industry clusters can save money; create jobs
Investing in helping existing clusters of businesses to become powered by clean energy can save taxpayers money, substantially reduce transmission requirements and speed up emissions reduction, our new report has found.

‘National Supergrid’ outlines a five-year grid investment program to build the foundation from which Australia can become a renewable energy powerhouse.
Further resources for Australia’s decarbonisation pathway
National Supergrid is a five-year grid investment program - the foundation of Australia's renewable energy future.
An 81% emissions reduction is achievable by 2030 with an ambitious clean technology rollout.
