Presented by the ANU Energy Change Institute in cooperation with the Energy Research Institutes Council for Australia (ERICA).
This year's Energy Update involves a special online discussion on the World Energy Outlook 2020 (WEO 2020) from the International Energy Agency (IEA) in Paris, presented by Ian Cronshaw who has contributed to 13 WEOs for the IEA.
He'll be accompanied by a panel of energy experts, including Nicola Falcon, GM Forecasting, Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) , Prof. Kylie Catchpole (ANU Research School of Electrical, Energy and Materials Engineering), Luke Menzel (CEO, Energy Efficiency Council) and more to be announced.
Ian's presentation will focus on the main elements of the WEO including the energy consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the importance of government policy in hastening the energy transition.
He will outline five key elements in the WEO necessary for a zero carbon future: decarbonising the electricity sector, extending electrification to sectors such as transport and low temperature heat, expanding electricity supply, increasing energy efficiency, and developing energy transition technologies we do not yet have, such as green steel.
The Energy Update format will be:
- Introduction by ECI Director Prof Ken Baldwin (5 mins)
- World Energy Outlook 2020 presentation (45 mins)
- Panel discussion - AEMO's Nicola Falcon, Prof Kylie Catchpole (ANU), Luke Menzel (EEC) and more (40 mins)
