Announcing the release of the Green technology and regulatory settings in Australia: an overview and discussion paper
We are thrilled to announce the release of Green technology and regulatory settings in Australia: an overview and discussion paper by Zsofia Korosy, Hub Co-Stream Lead of the Greentech research stream, working alongside Co-Stream Lead Bronwen Morgan.
In this discussion paper, the author explores four green technologies related to energy and investigated their potential to deliver carbon abatement and other highly sought after environmental benefits. These four technologies are:
- Electric Vehicles;
- Renewable energy storage systems, particularly batteries;
- Hydrogen; and
- Waste to energy.
The driving purpose of this discussion paper is to evaluate the regulatory settings related to each technology and initiate essential further discourse.
To this end, alongside the achievement of carbon abatement, the paper proposes three principles that should inform any regulatory approach:
- Energy justice;
- Just access to space and mobility; and
- Respect for the totality of ecological limits.
