This is the synopsis of a report prepared by Beyond Zero Emissions and the Climate Emergency Network, with the support from Climate Positive. The final version of the report will be launched on 14 July 2010.
The Zero Carbon Australia 2020 project was conceived to develop a blueprint for the transition to a decarbonised Australian economy by 2020. Wind and Concentrating Solar Thermal (CST) with Molten Salt Storage are the two primary technologies used, with some backup from biomass and existing hydro.
This synopsis explains the background of the project, the technologies involved, why they were chosen and how the project will be developed (costs, different phases, an estimated timeline, etc).
