Renewables, Affordability and Reliability: What is the Future of Energy in Australia?

Early this year the Federal Government declared that Australia was in the midst of an energy crisis. With recent blackouts in South Australia and closure of the Hazelwood power station in Victoria, there is considerable concern around affordability and reliability of energy supply in Australia. Important questions need to be addressed here are:

  • What is the role of renewables?
  • How to secure the supply of electricity in future?
  • Are conventional sources of generation more reliable than renewables?
  • Are the institutional arrangements and oversight of the electricity market effective and are they efficient?
  • What are the immediate and longer term ‘solutions’?

These questions are particularly salient in South Australia, where the State Government has initiated an Energy Plan to try to ensure supply.

The University of South Australia Business School, SA Power Networks and the Australian Agricultural and Resource Economics Society have joined forces to create a symposium to candidly discuss the issues.

The forum is specifically for industry, policy makers and academics working in energy.

Participants will hear from leading international and national experts, with a strong focus on solutions to the current energy problems in Australia.
