Entry 3, La Trobe St
Governing will almost certainly become a lot harder in the next 20 years. At this Policy Pitch seminar Grattan Institute’s Energy Program team will highlight some of the most pressing problems facing the Australian electricity sector.
Falling demand for electricity has been a continuing trend for a number of years. The trend has major implications for the value of assets in the energy sector. It raises questions such as:
- why is demand falling and how will it change the electricity system?
- what are the consequences for policy makers and for consumers?
- who will pay for the lost value of surplus assets?
- Tony Wood: Energy Program Director, Grattan Institute
- Lucy Carter: Energy Fellow, Grattan Institute
- Rob Gell: Environmental scientist and fellow of the Royal Geographic Society
