Climate Institute submission on the retirement of coal fired power stations

Policy Online carries a link (10.11.16) to a Climate Institute submission to the Seante inquiry into the retirement of coal fired power stations.

‘The transition from ageing, high-carbon coal generation to clean energy is a central concern not just for the Australian electricity system. Due to the essential nature of electricity services and the strategic role of decarbonised electricity in economy-wide emissions reduction, it is also critical to Australia’s long-term economic activity and societal well-being.

‘The Climate Institute’s submission focuses on the following questions: Why is a managed exit pathway for coal generators necessary? What are criteria for an appropriate exit pathway? What are the essential elements of an effective exit pathway?’
