Webinar 1 – Energy

As Australia moves towards a post-COVID economic recovery, a debate has begun about the kind of economy we want to build and how we go about doing it. Much has been made about the potential for a new green economy to replace our increasingly obsolete dependence on fossil fuels. However, no one seems to be talking about the regulatory barriers that could prevent some of these strong ideas from being implemented.

EDO is holding a series of free webinars hosted by EDO Special Counsel Dr Emma Carmody, which will bring together experts to delve into the challenges as we seek to rebuild a better Australia in the aftermath of this pandemic.

Energy was the subject of the first webinar on Wednesday 29 July 2020.

A useful summary of the discussion can be read here: Decarbonising the energy sector: regulatory barriers and opportunities for reform.
