Re-Imagining SA’s Energy Future Through a US and International Lens

  Last updated June 13, 2017 at 4:07 pm


Join Dr David Mooney on 22 June for a FREE public lecture about the future of energy in South Australia.

New ideas and innovative technologies are critical to energy system transformation. The lecture will provide insights from a leading global think tank to assist South Australians to identify the path to economically attractive, sustainable and secure energy.

South Australia is already at the forefront of the transition to a renewable energy future and there is great potential for local industry to benefit from the new investments that are needed to meet national and international targets for CO2 mitigation. Our outstanding resources of solar, wind, ocean and geothermal, offer potential for economic opportunity if the transition is well managed.  However, careful planning, local-global partnerships in technology development and market reform are also needed to manage the risks and ensure a successful transition to a clean, economically productive and secure energy future.
