Australia's power sector is decarbonising as the country explores alternatives to fossil fuel exports, but without a net-zero goal and policies to drive mass deployment of clean energy technologies, these may falter, experts warn.
While passive solutions are vital to the decarbonisation of cooling, improving the average energy efficiency of air conditioning is a simple, crucial step forward which governments can enact immediately.
Bringing the UK Electricity System Operator back under state control could help better manage the challenges of a system based largely on renewables, as well as aiding the move towards net zero.
