Energy transitions: How Australia can move to a future of clean, cheap and reliable power

SHARE PODCAST

On this episode of NousCast we speak to Simon Smith, the leader of Nous’ Utilities, Environment, Infrastructure and Resources practice. The topic for the discussion is “Energy transitions: How Australia can move to a future of clean, cheap and reliable power”.

Energy wars have been a fact of life in Australian politics for years, and we are still a long way from an energy policy that meets the triple-pronged objectives of clean, cheap and reliable power. So to get there, what is the right form of regulation? How can energy consumers be encouraged to improve energy productivity? And what can we learn from overseas, particularly from Germany as it grapples with similar challenges?

We have never really applied ourselves to energy productivity. It's a massive part of the cost for every business, and the technology exists in other countries. If only we were to pick them up and try them here, there is huge potential.
