PDF Carbon Essentials Electricity Generation 30/11/2009 9780864606310 N/A


The electricity generation sector accounts for up to 34% of Australia’s annual emissions figure and is heavily reliant on coal fired power stations. The industry sector will play a pivotal role in the prospective Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme (CPRS) to be launched in July 2011.

Current industry understanding does not always take into account the complexity and diversity of climate change and associated business issues.

Carbon Essentials Electricity Generation provides an industry specific sector view to key climate change issues facing the electricity generation sector. It provides an overall strategic road map, and offers potential solutions to key issues.

This simple yet comprehensive paper gives a balanced summary of all the issues, explains how the generation sector works, highlights the main barriers to and enablers of change, and draws out the key issues and opportunities in relation to emissions reduction.

Electricity generation industry specific issues covered in this report are:

Demand (current and projected)
Regulation (current and future)
Sources of energy – availability, cost structures, government support, emissions profiles
Business landscape
Carbon pricing impacts
Energy efficiency
International aspects
A summary of the key issues and potential solutions
