The Net-Zero Australia Study will identify plausible pathways and detailed infrastructure requirements by which Australia can transition to net zero emissions, and be a major exporter of low emission energy and products, by 2050. The project seeks to answer critical contemporary questions, such as, what physical plant infrastructure and societal changes are needed to decarbonize the Australian economy, including exports, by mid-century and how will these changes impact natural environments, the economy, incumbent infrastructure, and communities.
The project is a joint project between researchers from the University of Queensland and the University of Melbourne, the Nous Group, and working in collaboration with researchers from Princeton University. It will use the pioneering Rapid Switch framework developed and applied by Princeton researchers in its recent ground-breaking Net-Zero America study.
