Net zero emissions by 2050: The plan
Australia has a plan to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.
Our Long-Term Emissions Reduction Plan focuses on the technology that will help Australia cut emissions while creating jobs and growing our economy.
It's a fact
We’ve made good progress in reducing emissions and switching to renewable energy. And we've got big plans for the future.
The Long-Term Emissions Reduction Plan will help us achieve it.
The rate at which we reduced emissions between 2005 and 2019 (15% vs 7%).
In 2020. The highest on record.
Like solar panels, since 2017. (Government and private investment).
The highest uptake of solar photovoltaics globally.
Projection by 2030.
An additional 24 GW of rooftop solar is forecast over the coming decade.
Between 2005 and 2021.
Committed in the decade between now and 2030 (Government investment).
We’re investing billions in renewable energy, next-generation energy technologies and emissions reduction projects between now and 2030.
Nice lake (also a battery!)
Snowy 2.0 will increase the electricity storage capacity of the iconic Snowy Hydro Scheme by almost 50% and deliver almost 4000 jobs over the life of the project.
Seaweed for livestock feed
Red seaweed (‘Asparagopsis’) is a feed supplement that reduces the production of methane by more than 80% and has the potential to increase livestock productivity.
We’ve put solar panels here
The RayGen Solar Power Plant is pioneering world-first technology to boost low-cost energy storage.
Get to know the new technologies that could support thousands of jobs, while lowering emissions and energy costs.
A future low emissions fuel.
Already a renewable energy success story.
It’s true - seaweed in livestock feed could massively lower emissions.
