Webinar: Modelling Future Fuel Options for Australia

September 15, 2021

Thursday 16 September 2pm-3pm AEST (Melbourne/Sydney/Canberra)

Join our Researchers to learn more about our latest research report that models and assesses the regional and national implications of the introduction of hydrogen to Australia’s energy mix in scenarios achieving a 60% and a 100% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

Developed for Future Fuels CRC, this report aims to demonstrate the capacity of a regionalised Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) model to inform questions about the role of hydrogen in greenhouse gas emission reduction strategies.

Measured against a 2005 benchmark, the Australian Government is projecting that, by 2030, it will have reduced greenhouse gas emissions to 511 Mt CO2-e. The government is adopting a “technologies, not taxes” approach to reducing emissions and released a Technology Investment Roadmap that seeks to position Australia as a global leader in low-emission technology development. Coupling this with the IEAs integrated assessment of demand for energy products, this report assesses the regional and national implications of these policy settings on Australia’s future energy mix.
