Energy directions paper points to slightly renewed carbon-based future.

The Western Australian Barnett Government has been working on a Strategic Energy Initiative, Energy2031.

Today (3 March 2011) the Minister for Energy, the Hon Peter Collier, released the Directions Paper to draw in one last final round of consultation before the plan is put in place.

The continuing development of an energy plan for 2031 needs to ambitiously plan for how we decarbonise, and provide confidence that our economy will not be stuck with a carbon legacy in energy generation as we establish a carbon price.

 ‘The Sustainable Energy Association of Australia (SEA) is an industry chamber supporting market-based solutions to grow sustainable energy,' says Prof. Ray Wills, SEA Chief Executive and Adjunct Professor with The University of Western Australia.

‘Any business group interested in an economically efficient means of dealing with emissions supports market-based approaches, and an emissions trading system is that and more,' says Prof Wills.

 
Climate action triage – solar energy brought back to life after rescue from flood.

SEA Media Release - 18 February 2011

Action on sustainable energy has fortunately been saved from the floods, but there is still need to ensure that recovery is built into rebuilding the flood-impacted regions of eastern Australia, says the Sustainable Energy Association of Australia (SEA).

Around the world, growth in renewable energy investments is now greater than any other energy investment - except for Australia. As the nation with the world's best renewable energy resources, all Australian Governments need to become even more ambitious in the support for renewable energy generation.

‘While the resuscitation of the body of funding to solar flagships is absolutely welcome, the need to do more, not less, on renewable energy has not been recognised,' says Prof. Ray Wills, SEA Chief Executive.
