ANU Energy News & Events

Dear reader

With 2016 confirmed as the hottest year ever recorded and energy sadly emerging as an increasingly contested issue, scroll down for analysis of the politics around energy and climate by two ANU experts. 

On a more positive note, ANU research is demonstrating that, with the addition of storage, an entirely renewable energy grid is achievable, reliable and affordable.   

The Energy Change Institute has also made a submission to the Senate Select Committee into the Resilience of Electricity Infrastructure in a Warming World.  

And we hope to see you at our event on Monday night to hear the inspiring story of how a small Danish island has already gone 100% renewable.
