Low emissions technology and the innovation challenge /

by Garnaut, Ross | Garnaut Climate Change Review.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Commonwealth of Australia 2011Description: PDF.Other title: Garnaut Climate Change Review update paper ; no. 7, 2011.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 46-51Summary: New technologies will significantly affect the cost of a global effort to mitigate climate change. As discussed in Update Paper six (Carbon pricing and reducing Australia?s emissions), putting a price on carbon will provide an incentive to reduce emissions. Innovation will make the transition faster and less costly. The introduction of a carbon price will deliver a structural shift in the economy as producers and consumers make and use goods, services and processes that generate lower emissions. A technological response will lower the cost of the structural shift. There will be opportunities for cost-reducing innovation across all sectors of the economy: energy and electricity generation; energy efficiency; transport; urban planning and design; agriculture, forestry and biosequestration more generally; manufacturing; and mining. The policy recommendations in this paper apply to all parts of the economy.Availability: (1)

Progress towards effective global action on climate change /

by Garnaut, Ross | Garnaut Climate Change Review.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Commonwealth of Australia 2011Description: PDF.Other title: Garnaut Climate Change Review update paper ; no. 2, 2011.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 34-35Summary: The threat of climate change to prosperity in one country cannot be removed by the actions of that country alone. Effective action to moderate the risks of human-induced climate change requires large contributions to reductions in emissions from all major countries, and substantial contributions from the rest of the world as well. As a result, the search for effective climate change policy is partly a search for effective cooperation amongst countries of a kind and dimension that has never previously been known. This paper discusses that search for an international basis for effective climate change policy. It cannot avoid analysing wider changes in the international system, as these are the context of any success or failure in this new province of international cooperation.Availability: (1)

Take action on electric hot water and air-conditioning /

by Fregon, Kevin | Moreland Energy Foundation.

Publisher: Brunswick, Vic. Moreland Energy Foundation 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: The 'Take Action on Electric Hot Water and Air-Conditioning' (Take Action) project was funded by the Sustainability Fund, managed by Sustainability Victoria, and undertaken by the Moreland Energy Foundation Limited (MEFL) over two years, from May 2007 to August 2009. It was undertaken as part of the Victorian Government's efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from households by 10 per cent by 2010, and to reduce Victoria's overall emissions by 2050 to 60 per cent below the level they were at in 2000. MEFL brought to the project significant experience and expertise in research into residential energy use, community action programs and the development of practical and policy solutions. The project focused on two significant and inefficient uses of electricity in households, hot water and air-conditioning systems. It aimed to establish a solid research base that could increase understanding of the penetration of these systems, to trial innovative approaches that could reduce electricity useand greenhouse gas emissions, and explore opportunities for and barriers against such environmental action. Take Action surveyed residents from 564 existing homes in Victoria on the types of hot water and cooling systems (both passive and mechanical) that were installed and developed a database which can be used to estimate the potential of retrofitting initiatives targeting air-conditioning and hot water systems. More than 100 homes were then inspected to assess their hot water and thermal performance so the most effective retrofitting activities could be identified for two trials in 20 selected households and 1 common laundry.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
