Australian Stationary Energy Plan: 100% Renewable Energy in 10 Years

Posted in Events, Research by Mark Ogge on July 9th, 2010

Please join us for the launch of the Stationary Energy Plan, the culmination of over 12 months and thousands of hours of pro bono work by engineers, scientists and postgraduate students.  The plan is a collaboration between the climate solutions think tank Beyond Zero Emissions, and the University of Melbourne Energy Institute.  This plan is unique in Australia.  It has been put together in a collaborative way involving over 50 technical experts.

It is a detailed and costed blueprint for transitioning our stationary energy sector to 100% renewable energy in ten years. The technologies utilised in this plan are commercially available now.

This free public lecture will cover the details of the plan as well as the state of renewable energy in Australia more broadly. A panel discussion will follow the presentations.

Wednesday 14 July, 6-8pm
Basement Theatre, The Spot
198 Berkeley St, Carlton

Speakers:
John Daley (CEO, Grattan Institute)
Keith Lovegrove (Solar Thermal Group Leader, ANU)
Lane Crockett (General Manager, Pacific Hydro)
Matthew Wright (Director Beyond Zero Emissions)

The full report will be made available for the first time on 14 July, free to download from the Beyond Zero Emissions website or hard copy for purchase.  A flyer for the lecture is available here.
