First 2014 Branch Meeting - Debunking Renewable Energy Myths and Reframing Australian Energy FuturesFebruary 12, 2014 at 4:00 am
Welcome back! We have an exciting ATA program planned for the year ahead, kicking off with Sydney's own Dr Mark Diesendorf in February. Upcoming topics include electric-powered transport, innovations in solar technology and pragmatic approaches for sustainable home design. We look forward to your involvement throughout the year. Be in touch if you'd like to contribute to the work of the ATA Sydney Central Branch.
Talk summary: Renewable energy technologies are expanding and their costs are continuing to decline, threatening the business models of the electricity industry and the future of the coal industry. As a result, false myths about renewable energy are being disseminated by these industries and their supporters among politicians and the media. This talk will bust some of the principal myths while demonstrating that a renewable energy future is technically and economically feasible for Australia.
Mark's presentation is available here.
