CCEP update: Biden, Hazelwood and long-term strategies  

Webinars have become a necessity during this year, and they have made it easier to tap into expertise at the other end of the planet. Join us this Friday 10am Canberra time for an online discussion about what the Biden administration will mean for climate policy in the United States and globally, and some implications for Australia. Together with the Centre for Applied Macroeconomic Analysis (CAMA) here at Crawford School, we’ll host Dr Adele Morris who leads the program on climate and energy economics at the Brookings Institution in Washington. Prof Warwick McKibbin and I will provide some comments. Friday 4 December, 10am Canberra time. Register here

Over three years ago, one of Australia’s largest and oldest coal fired power stations closed. We’ll host discussion about the Hazelwood transition policies and their outcomes in the Latrobe Valley, featuring several speakers from research, government, civil society and unions. Join us on Tuesday 8 December noon, register here

Recent working papers released by the Centre for Climate and Energy Policy are on trends in Australia’s energy productivity and gas consumption, mortality under extreme heat, and Hazelwood power station transition policies.

Ongoing work at the Centre includes synthesizing global best practice on the development of long-term emissions strategies. How best to go about an inclusive and exhaustive process that draws on top quality analysis, and that tackles the hard questions not just on technology but also economics? How might this be done in Australia?  If you are interested to discuss, please get in touch. 

Best regards
