As the Australian population continues to grow, so too will the need for energy, food and materials. Energy systems will also need to evolve to meet this increase in demand, while remaining affordable, reliable and environmentally friendly.
The recent release of Australian Chief Scientist Alan Finkel’s independent review into the energy sector further supported the ongoing use of gas, particularly as an input into electricity generation and to help reduce emissions from the energy sector.
The landmark Gas Vision 2050 report highlights the bright future for gas networks in Australia.
An important milestone for the gas industry, this report is the result of comprehensive collaboration and consultation between key industry bodies including Gas Energy Australia (GEA), Australian Pipeline and Gas Association (APGA), Australian Petroleum Production and Exploration Association (APPEA), Energy Networks Australia, and the Gas Appliance Manufacturers Association of Australia (GAMAA).
This new vision highlights how gas and renewables can support each other to achieve a near zero carbon energy sector by 2050, including a decarbonisation pathway for natural gas beyond 2050. We’ve done the hard work for you and digested this 25-page report to bring you the key insights. Here’s how bright Australia’s future could be if more of us go with gas.
