    • Towards Zero Carbon:Winning Hearts and Minds
      Mark Henley, B Ec, JP
      Views expressed are no necessarily those of employer, Uniting Care Wesley Adelaide
    • Hearts and Minds
      Leadership
      Engineering
      Economics
      Four Areas for Parallel Action
    • Hearts and Minds
    • In January 2010, 1737 people were asked: Would you agree or disagree that increasing amounts of CO2 in the atmosphere through man’s use of fossil fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas are significantly affecting earth’s temperature?
      Before Copenhagen: 58% agreed,
      Jan 2010 that fell to 54%
      February 2011the result was 24%.
      Hearts and Minds … Lost?
    • Percentage Unsure
      January 2010: 18%
      February 2011: 38%.
      A 20% change in 1 year!

      Sure to Unsure
    • FEAR?
      Rising inequality: Rising Energy Costs
      Loss of Trust
      Economic and Job losses
      Global Problem: Australian can’t have influence
      Why the Change
    • Rising Energy Costs
    • Generation (Wholesale)
      Transmission
      Distribution
      Retail
      + GST
      Electricity Industry Elements
    • Retail Electricity Price Index, 1991-2010
    • Electricity in CPI
    • Electricity Prices Austvs Others
    • Network Investment, 2002-12
    • Financial Stress
    • Electricity Spend and Use
    • Trust
    • Truth- Speaking
      Tangible local and household action, eg Energy Efficiency
      Strong transition strategies for people adversely affected by change, eg la Trobe Valley, Port Augusta
      Civil society talking about the imperatives for a low carbon future
      Trust Building
    • Economic Impacts
    • Rest of the World
    • Leadership
    • Truthsaying
    • UK Energy White Paper
      We must decarbonise electricity generation: it is vital that we take action now to transform the UK permanently into a low-carbon economy and meet our 15 per cent renewable energy target by 2020 and our 80 per cent carbon reduction target by 2050.
      Contracting for Low-Carbon Generation
      At the heart of our strategy to deliver this transition is a new system of long-term contracts in the form of Feed-in Tariffs with Contracts for Difference (FiTCfD),
      The introduction of a Carbon Price Floor (CPF) to reduce uncertainty, put a fair price on carbon and provide a stronger incentive to invest in low-carbon generation now.
      An Emissions Performance Standard (EPS) set as an annual limit equivalent to 450g CO2/kWh at baseload to provide a clear regulatory signal

    • The Renewables “Cocktail”
    • Innovation
    • Economics
    • Remember OPEC?
      Not our First Price on Carbon
    • Economists’ Open Letter Supporting a Price on Carbon Pollution 2011
      We are writing this open letter on a carbon pollution price as a group of concerned economists with a broad range of personal political views, but united in the judgements that:
      -a price on carbon pollution, preferably an emissions trading scheme, is the best way to reduce carbon emissions over time; and
      -the design features of such a scheme will be critical to its success.
      We are all of the view that the introduction of an emissions trading scheme is a necessary and desirable structural reform of the Australian economy, it should
      be broadly-based in its application and highly transparent in its implementation.
      It should not be approached in a politically opportunistic and haphazard manner.
    • Current Developments
      AEMC rule change proposals re Distribution Price Path regulatory processes
      Energy White Paper
      Reliability Standards
      National Energy Customer Framework (NECF) implementation (From 1/7/12)

      Energy Efficiency programs
    • A Fairer Australia: equity still matters
