Greenhouse gas emissions from the energy sector comprise the greatest share of Australia’s emissions.
The energy sector is currently the greatest single source of Australia’s emissions, and the sector with most potential to rapidly transition to net-zero carbon. This transition is required for Australia to meet its greenhouse emissions reduction goals.
Climate KIC Australia is exploring the application of renewable and low-carbon energy technologies and pathways to transform Australia’s energy sector.
Several regions of Australia provide an opportunity for innovation. These areas are currently undergoing economic transition and have traditionally been dependent on carbon-intensive industries.
Climate-KIC Australia is helping regional areas explore and capture opportunities in the emerging low carbon economy. With a focus on regions that have traditionally been dependent on emissions-intensive industries, Climate-KIC Australia works with communities, using a structured approach to assist regions and towns embrace and benefit from transition.
