Technology and engineering academy says not to wait for a ‘miracle’ and aim for net zero emissions

The Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering has released a position statement calling on the Australian federal government to “prioritise the immediate deployment of existing mature, low-carbon technologies which can make deep cuts to high-emitting sectors before 2030”.

Prof Renate Egan of the University of New South Wales, a member of the academy’s energy forum working group, said existing technologies – including solar and wind power, energy storage, electric vehicles and energy efficiency for buildings – could rapidly reduce emissions in the electricity, stationary energy and transport sectors.
