rapid switch: australia
Rapid Switch Australia focuses on the domestic fossil industries and their interaction with the global energy market. Australia is a large exporter of fossil fuels, such as coal. There is likely to be increasing tension between Australian businesses and states who benefit from fossil energy exports, their customers (including India) and domestic climate action policies, including medium-term (2030) state-based targets for renewable energy levels that are among the world’s most ambitious. This effort is studying the potential for this tension to impact the pace of decarbonization.
