What might net zero look like for Australia? What changes might we have to make to our economy, infrastructure and outlook to achieve net zero emissions by mid-century?

On Wednesday 19 April, Nous Group together with our research partners at The University of Melbourne, The University of Queensland and Princeton University, will release the final modelling results from the Net Zero Australia study at a public event in Brisbane.

Launched in 2020, the Net Zero Australia study aims to provide rigorous and independent analysis of how Australia can achieve net zero emissions for both our domestic and export economies. Interim modelling results released in August 2022 showed that achieving net zero will be an immense challenge, but it also creates a once-in-a-generation nation-building opportunity.

The final findings from the study will be made public for the first time at this event, including a detailed breakdown of possible scenarios and sensitivities, sector by sector, and comprehensive mapping of the transition to net zero emissions.

Hosted by The University of Queensland, the launch will be held in person in Brisbane and streamed online.

About Net Zero Australia

Net Zero Australia is a collaborative research partnership between the University of Melbourne, The University of Queensland, Princeton University and management consultancy Nous Group. Its groundbreaking Net Zero Australia study applies Princeton University’s Rapid Switch framework to the Australian context, identifying detailed pathways and infrastructure requirements by which Australia can transition to net zero emissions and become a major exporter of low emission energy and products by 2050.

The study is overseen by a Steering Committee chaired by former Chief Scientist of Australia, Emeritus Professor Robin Batterham. An Advisory Group includes nominees from the Australian Conservation Foundation, the Australian Council of Trade Unions, the Climate Council, Energy Consumers Australia, the Ethics Centre, the National Farmers Federation, the National Native Title Council, St Vincent de Paul, three independent members, and nominees from each of the sponsoring organisations.

Gold Level sponsors are Worley, Dow, Future Energy Exports Cooperative Research Centre (FEnEx CRC), APA Group and the Minderoo Foundation. The Silver Level sponsor is Future Fuels Cooperative Research Centre (FFCRC).
