Submission to the Australian Energy Market Operator on its Draft 2024 Integrated System Plan

The Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) has conducted a consultation process on its Draft 2024 Integrated System Plan (ISP). Climateworks and CSIRO have been engaged by AEMO to conduct multi-sector modelling to quantify the dynamic influences that would shape electricity demand under different emission reduction scenarios.


Submission on the Australian Government’s Future Gas Strategy

The Australian Government is developing a Future Gas Strategy, that will provide a medium (to 2035) and long-term (to 2050) plan for gas production and consumption in Australia.


Submission to the Australian Energy Market Commission on unlocking Customer Energy Resources benefits through flexible trading

The Australian Energy Market Commission (AEMC) has published a Directions Paper on its requested rule change Unlocking CER benefits through flexible trading.


Fundamentals for developing a long-term renewable energy roadmap for ASEAN

The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) has a unique opportunity to develop a sustainable energy system based on renewable energy resources.

Submission to the Climate Change Authority’s consultation on setting, tracking and achieving Australia’s emissions reduction targets

Australia has major opportunities in a net zero global economy from its renewable energy and mineral resources. However, Australia’s current high emissions intensity means that there are many challenges to transform the economy and reach net zero emissions.


How to decarbonise Australia: Industry, energy and technology

There is no single pathway to decarbonisation for Australia. Despite limited time to meet our 1.5°C targets, there are a range of ways the country can get there, with opportunities across sectors to seize the benefits of a net zero future.


Energy transitions in Vietnam and Indonesia: Building blocks for successful Just Energy Transition Partnerships

Southeast Asia is a fast-growing region with significant opportunities to accelerate decarbonisation. The recently announced Just Energy Transition Partnerships (JETP) in Indonesia and Vietnam demonstrate strengthened commitment to accelerate the low-carbon transition in the region by developing a country-led model that aims to phase out/down unabated coal-fired power generation and cease issuance of coal-fired power plants, while ensuring equitable and inclusive outcomes for vulnerable workers, and communities in coal-dependent regions, consumers and incumbent companies.


Taking on transition: Impact report 2022

Anna Skarbek, CEO of Climateworks Centre, introduces the organisation’s 2022 impact report. In 2022, the global community held firm in its commitment to a net zero future, amidst a challenging year with continued impacts from the COVID pandemic, war in Ukraine, energy security concerns and rising living costs worldwide.

Submission to the Australian Governments’ consultation on proposed legislative changes to incorporate an emissions reduction objective into the national energy objectives

The transformation of the energy system is crucial for the decarbonisation of Australia’s economy. It has substantial emissions in its own right – with electricity generation around a third of national emissions and other stationary energy around another fifth.


The Briefing Room: Financing the region’s clean energy transition

Our experts share their analysis of energy transition finance, including priorities for Southeast Asia and the role that countries such as Australia can take in speeding up the transition.

Net zero momentum tracker – energy sector

Australia’s energy sector must accelerate its pace of decarbonisation if Australia is to reach net zero emissions, in line with the global climate goals.


The briefing room: The energy transition

Recent research from Climateworks and CSIRO shows that viable paths to zero emissions exist for all major economic sectors in Australia.  On 13 May 2020 as part of the Climateworks webinar series ‘the briefing room’, CEO Anna Skarbek joined CSIRO’s Chief Energy Economist Paul Graham and Morgan Stanley’s Rob Koh on the pathway to net zero energy.


Plug and play – second report

Going forward, Australia’s electricity network may be less reliant on large, centralised electricity generation. More individuals and businesses are installing renewable generation of their own.


Solving the gas crisis: A big problem deserves a big solution

Australia is facing a gas crisis due to a mismatch between domestic supply and demand in the east coast market, driven by rapid growth in the LNG export market and the absence of a comprehensive national energy policy.


Power up: Australia’s electricity sector can and should do more to deliver on our climate commitments

The electricity sector can deliver emissions reductions across Australia’s economy, ensuring we meet our Paris commitments at the lowest cost possible.


Plug and play: Facilitating grid connection of low emissions technologies – Consultation summary paper

A major transformation in the structure of Australia’s electricity sector is taking shape. Australia must do its fair share in the global effort against climate change.


Energy Productivity Index for Companies

Could boosting energy productivity improve your investment performance? As part of the ‘Energy Productivity Index for Companies’ project, Climateworks Australia developed an index analysing the energy productivity of 70 global listed industrial companies across six sectors – airlines, automobiles, chemicals, construction, paper and steel.


Australia’s energy productivity potential

Australia could nearly double energy productivity by 2030, and boost competitiveness with other countries. Climateworks’ research shows that the potential exists to nearly double the energy productivity of the Australian economy by 2030, through investing in the modernisation of our energy system, and taking advantage of recent technological developments.


Energy management and company competitiveness

Energy, once perceived as a relatively low fixed cost, is now becoming an important variable cost that impacts on profits. This report outlines a methodology to assist companies to gain a deeper understanding of energy risks and the opportunities associated with improved energy performance.
