Earlier this morning Climate Councillors Professor Tim Flannery and Andrew Stock held a press conference in Sydney to launch a landmark report investigating the future of Australia’s electricity sector.
The report’s findings are resounding: Australia’s electricity sector is ageing, inefficient, unprepared and requires urgent reform.
It’s also clear that coal-fired power will struggle to compete economically with other sources of electricity as the world moves to limit emissions and that there are substantial opportunities for Australia in renewable energy, which is already lowering the cost of electricity
See more of the top findings and watch the 3 minute video to get across the key points.
The report comes at a time when electricity prices, renewable energy and coal-fired power are extremely topical issues in the public debate. The Climate Council’s latest report provides clear, authoritative expert information to inform the current discussions on the key issues facing the electricity sector.

I’m particularly excited about this report as it responds to many requests we have had from the community to investigate issues in the electricity sector.
It would not have been possible without the ongoing support of our incredible Founding Friends and the broader community. I urge you to keep an eye out for us in the media today and join the conversation by sharing these important findings with your friends & networks.
Thank you for your support,
Climate Council CEO
