Plug & Play: Facilitating grid connection of low emissions technologies — Consultation summary paper [PDF 826.36 KB]

See also the second report from this project.

For Australia to play its fair share in the global effort against climate change we must ensure that the innovative technologies and business models required to meet climate targets and drive energy productivity can readily participate in the energy market. The objective of the Plug and Play project is to identify and drive the implementation of institutional and policy solutions to make grid connections for existing and emerging technologies as straightforward and cost effective as possible for customers and proponents, while safeguarding electricity supply.

Low Carbon High Performance Buildings - Appendices [PDF 973.03 KB]

The appendices to the full report prepared by ClimateWorks Australia for the Australian Sustainable Built Environment Council (ASBEC) exploring the profound and cost-effective emissions reductions opportunities presented by Australia’s built environment.

Towards Fuel Efficient, Lower Emission Light Vehicles: Submission to the Vehicle Emissions Discussion Paper [PDF 6.24 MB]

The transport sector is one of the fastest growing sources of emissions within Australia, increasing by 47.5% since 1990, however it also represents one of the most financially attractive emission reduction opportunities across the Australian economy. ClimateWorks and Future Climate Australia have identified that best practice light vehicle CO2 emission standards can reduce emissions from light vehicles by about 100 million tonnes between 2020 to 2030 - close to 10% of the Federal Government’s emissions reduction target over that period.

Towards Fuel Efficient, Lower Emissions Light Vehicles: Response Summary [PDF 4.08 MB]

On 1 December 2015, ClimateWorks released an Issues Paper considering a range of complementary measures that could be implemented in support of light vehicle CO2 emission standards, to help drive improvement in fuel economy across Australia’s light vehicle fleet. Input from consultation with industry, government and consumers (in collaboration with Future Climate Australia and the Global Fuel Economy) has been consolidated into this summary report.

A prosperous, net-zero pollution Australia starts today [PDF 7.00 MB]

Right now, Australia has an opportunity. We can do our fair share, helping to keep global warming below two degrees, while creating a cleaner, modern, and more sustainable future. And at the same time, we can maintain our economic prosperity. This report builds on ClimateWorks Australia and the Australian National University's 'Pathways to Deep Decarbonisation in 2050' report.
