Since its launch in early 2012, RenewEconomy has emerged as Australia’s best informed and most read website focusing on clean energy news and analysis, as well as climate policy. It is read widely among the industry and policy-makers, and others with a strong interest in the transition to a low carbon economy.
It is an independent website founded and owned by Giles Parkinson, a journalist of 30 years experience, a former Business Editor and Deputy Editor of the Australian Financial Review, a former columnist for The Bulletin magazine and The Australian, and the founder and former editor of Climate Spectator.
Beyond Zero Emissions (BZE) is an internationally recognised climate solutions think tank, with a large national network of scientists, engineers, economists and expert advisors.
Their original research has produced a complete blueprint for Australia to become a thriving zero emissions economy. They provide detailed costings for a ten-year transition in each sector of Australia’s economy.
The OpenNEM project aims to make the wealth of public National Electricity Market (NEM) data more accessible to a wider audience.
Improved access will facilitate better public understanding of the market, improve energy literacy and help facilitate a more informed national discussion on Australia’s energy transition in the long term interests of consumers.
Providing a clear window on the data, addresses the information asymmetry between stakeholders and improve the productivity of those engaged in energy market discussions.
