Australia has unique advantages and serious challenges in the race to develop sustainable power infrastructure before 2030. The Australian Energy sector’s renewable options and potential for rapid scaling include Geothermal, Hydro, Wind, Solar, Ocean and Bio. They are the envy of many.

Development needs to be accelerated. The challenges of keeping the lights on as Australia ends its reliance on carbon heavy fuel are significant but getting sustainable infrastructure right will deliver immeasurable rewards. This talk examines how the transition can happen.
