Australia has a wealth of expertise in Government and Universities. We know what needs to be done and have blueprints for how to get there.
Start with the independent Finkle Report commissioned by the COAG Energy Council whose objective was to set out an energy blueprint to maintain security and reliability in light of rapid technological change and the transition to renewables.
As recommended by the Finkle Review, this Independent Review by the Australian Energy Market Operator offers a Integrated System Plan to facilitate an orderly energy system transition under a range of scenarios based on sound engineering and least cost. By far the most comprehensive and analytical report to date, this is currently the default report that anyone interested in energy refers to.
This report makes a compelling strategic argument that Australia’s fossil energy exports will decline as the world decarbonises, and Australia naturally possesses one of the best renewable energy resources in the world.
This energy transition roadmap would benefit from a significant edit to focus on the essential components, costs and timing of actually getting it done. That said, they make a compelling case that it's 100% possible, the numbers add up, and it's now a question of when not if.
Australian's have long trusted the CSIRO. Here is their Low Emissions Technology Roadmap.
A discussion paper by the Alternative Technology Association (ATA) and referencing ANU studies, they highlight the need for good long term planning of energy transmission.
