News from the Centre for Climate & Energy Policy

We will hold several events over the remainder of the year that you may want to attend. Today let me highlight our forum “Coal transition: power sector, regional adjustment and policy” on 24 July at ANU. We will host presentations on power sector developments and transformation in coal regions, discussions of policy and regulatory approaches and the role of business, unions and civil society in coal transition. Join us for informed conversations about a topic that is challenging and unavoidable for our national discussion. See here for a description, draft program, and registration.


One program that is central to our work these days is the Energy Transition Hub, a bilateral collaboration between Australia and Germany for applied research on the long-term transition to a zero-carbon energy system, and the opportunities this brings. We’re hiring researchers for the Hub to work with us on energy economics and policy – please help us spread the word! We’re also delighted to host Prof Andreas Loeschel at ANU for some weeks. Andreas is one of our German Hub co-directors, and chair of Germany’s expert commission on the monitoring of the country’s energy transition.


As usual, we’ve been publishing working papers. Our website also lists selected short articles, opinion pieces and media commentary. 


Finally to note that we’ve changed our name, from Centre for Climate Economics and Policy to Centre for Climate and Energy Policy. This is to signify the importance of energy issues in the body of research that we collectively do. Much of our work still is, and will be, economic in nature.


I hope to see you at one of our events, or to hear from you by email, twitter (@anuCrawfordClim, @frankjotzo) or other means. Please feel free to forward this newsletter to anyone who may be interested. You can subscribe to (or opt out of) our mailing list here, or email


Best wishes
