“Deploy!” Says Beyond Zero Emissions
The latest report from Beyond Zero Emissions says we have the technology to cut our emissions as deeply as 80%, all we need to do is deploy. Dive into Beyond Zero Emissions’ vision is for a prosperous zero emissions Australia for more details beyond what we’re covering here. The new federal Labour government has passed legislation (the Australian Climate Bill) mandating a 43% emissions cut. “‘Deploy’ is BZE’s first research publication since the passing of this federal legislation and in this report, we make the case for a more ambitious 81% reduction by 2030,” Geoff Summerhayes, Chair of Beyond Zero Emissions, says. This report “sets aside the misconception that emissions cutting technologies are still in the development stage, or worse do not yet exist. With six technologies that are developed and in-market today, the report outlines how we can achieve outsized emissions reduction, create future-proof jobs, and lay the economic foundations for modern and competitive export industries. Deploy sets out how, wind turbines, solar, energy storage, heat pumps, electrolysers and EV’s, can transform electricity generation, buildings, vehicles, and industry, suppod by carbon drawdown, to combine to deliver an 81% reduction over the next five years.
