Repowering Port Augusta: BZE Discussion Group

Posted in Events by Mark Ogge on June 25th, 2012

2 July , 2012
6:30 pmto8:00 pm

The monthly discussion group, focusing on solutions to climate change, is brought to you by Beyond Zero Emissions and our Zero Carbon Australia project partner, the Melbourne Energy Institute.


At this critical time for South Australian energy policy, Beyond Zero Emissions has released the long-awaited Repowering Port Augusta report. This report presents the compelling economic and environmental case for why Port Augusta’s ageing coal-fired power stations should be replaced with concentrating solar thermal power (CST).

As with the Zero Carbon Australia Stationary Energy Plan research collaboration with the University of Melbourne, this Port August blueprint is technically detailed, fully costed and backed up by rigorous research. Join us and support the future of Australia’s first solar thermal power plant with molten salt storage. For interstate participants, stay tuned for details of live streaming of this event.
