A Low Carbon Future: Unlocking Australia's Renewable Energy Potential
“We have some of the world’s best renewable energy resources, the best scientific research and know-how, and a skilled workforce, but we need policies to capture this opportunity.” Mark Butler, MP Fundamental changes in global energy production pose significant challenges for Australia. In particular, as the recent Paris climate agreement highlights there is now international consensus among nation states for dramatic reductions in carbon emissions. Combined with the technological disruption of low cost renewable energy technologies, it is clear a global transition towards a low-carbon economy is now underway. While Australia has some of the world’s best renewable energy resources, scientific research and know-how, and a skilled workforce, it currently lacks policies which can harness the full potential of a low carbon future. With Climate Change touted as one of the key issues that could affect the outcome of the next Federal election, the Shadow Environment Minister drops into the Sydney Environment Institute for a conversation about the future of climate policy in Australia and where the party stands on the issue for Australia’s future.

AUSTRALIA'S leading counter-terrorism agency has been providing intelligence to the federal government on environmental groups that campaign against coalmining. The Australia Security Intelligence Organisation's politically sensitive monitoring of the campaigners comes after Resources and Energy Minister Martin Ferguson warned that protests at power stations and coal export terminals could have ''life-threatening'' consequences and ''major trade and investment implications''. Security officials have suggested privately that environmental activists pose greater threats to energy infrastructure than terrorists. But confirmation that ASIO has been monitoring and advising on security issues arising from such activism is likely to cause tensions between federal Labor and their parliamentary allies, the Australian Greens. Greens leader Bob Brown said yesterday it was ''intolerable that the Labor government was spying on conservation groups'' and condemned the ''deployment of ASIO as a political weapon'' against peaceful protests. ''Martin Ferguson is incorrigible. But it's not just Ferguson. It's the cabinet, it's the Labor government that's happy to use the police and ASIO against community groups, against ordinary people, on behalf of foreign-owned mining corporations,'' he said. Senator Brown said he would urgently take up the issue with the government, adding that former Labor attorney-general and civil libertarian Lionel Murphy ''would be spinning in his grave''. The Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism on Tuesday confirmed ASIO's role in advising on security issues relating to protests against coalmining when it refused to release under freedom of information a December 2010 ministerial brief on the possible disruption of energy infrastructure by protesters. The document has been wholly exempted from release because it contains sensitive information exchanged between federal, state and territory governments, and classified information derived from ''an intelligence agency document''. ASIO is exempt from freedom of information laws and is described on its website as ''the only agency in the Australian intelligence community authorised in the normal course of its duties to undertake investigations into the activities of Australian persons''. Other FOI documents confirm that Mr Ferguson pressed then attorney-general Robert McClelland in September 2009 to see whether ''the intelligence-gathering services of the Australian Federal Police'' could be used to help energy companies handle increasing activity by coalmining protesters. Mr Ferguson was particularly concerned about protests at the Hazelwood power station in Victoria, warning that ''protests such as this can lead to unlawful activity designed to directly compromise the delivery of essential services to Australians''. ''The risk of protest-related disruptions in the energy sector is likely to continue in the near future ... these disruptions pose a real threat to the reliable delivery of electricity and other essential services,'' he said. Such disruptions ''at critical times can have serious, and at times life-threatening, repercussions across the community''. Mr McClelland confirmed in reply in November 2009 that the AFP ''continually monitors the activities of issues-motivated groups and individuals who may target establishments through direct action, or action designed to disrupt or interfere with essential services''. Mr McClelland also highlighted the role of ASIO ''in intelligence gathering, analysis and advice in relation to protest activity [that] focuses on actual, or the potential for, violence''. He said that ''where warranted, ASIO advice may take the form of security intelligence reports, notification of protest action or threat assessments''. Other documents released under FOI have been heavily redacted to prevent disclosure of methods for ''preventing, detecting, investigating and dealing with illegal disruption to critical energy infrastructure'' - 12 April 2012.

Energy efficiency
Paul Edwards, Lend Lease Australia Pacific Australian Government Department of the Environment and Heritage, June 2005 Energy efficiency (AVI - 57,430 KB) This video should be viewed in the context of the ESD design guide for Australian Government buildings. The ESD design guide gives a basic introduction to ecological sustainability issues and specifically how the built environment affects them. It begins by outlining the Australian position on Ecologically Sustainable Development (ESD) and some key policies relevant to buildings and ESD. See also: more ESD design guide videos Transcript The chilled beams has had an impact on our chillers. Our chillers are extremely efficient. We have efficient fans and parts. One of the interesting outcomes of our design was the 'free' rock wall cooling system, which is passive. We have a four storey sandstone rock face in our building, which is adjacent to our atrium. It works on the same principles as the chilled beams, as a large thermal mass, so when the space is heated up by the people in it, that air is cooled by the rock wall, the cold air falls down the wall and streams across the atrium and cools our occupants. It's very effective, in some cases, too effective. Another passive element is our extensive natural lighting. I wouldn't say we've got the ideal depth of floor plate. We've got a 12-16 max floor plate, which gives you good natural light as well as good cross flow ventilation. We've got a 20m long wide floor plate with an atrium on one side, with full height glazing on the other. This maximises daylight, and we maximise daylight as well through the use of a retractable blind on the north, west and southern facades. On level four, our meeting rooms, we have a 'smart' door design which means all the doors are open when meetings aren't on, which maximises daylight into our reception area. In terms of artificial components on energy efficiency, we have T5 lighting... We're achieving 6.7 watts per square metre, which is way below anything else I know of. We've got PE cells and motion detectors, the usual gadgets to reduce energy consumption. I think one of our biggest components is our user education programs that we've had in place.

Paul Fletcher MP speaks on the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (Repeal) Bill 2014
): I am very pleased to rise to speak on the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (Repeal) Bill 2014—the bill which gives effect to the decision to close the Australian Renewable Energy Agency; a decision made as part of the 2014 budget. The bill also provides for the transfer of all of the existing contracts and commitments to the Department of Industry. In the time available to me today I would like to make a couple of points. Firstly, this debate is not about whether or not renewable energy, and continued research and development and commercialisation in that field, is desirable and to be encouraged. Clearly, it is. Secondly, the key issue for debate is whether it makes sense to maintain the current structure for funding and government support of renewable energy and particularly whether a separate Australian renewable energy agency is necessary. I, thirdly, want to make the point that that would be an important question to ask at any time but it is a question that needs to be asked with even greater urgency given that, at the present time, we have the opportunity to capture significant savings out of the structural changes the government proposes under this bill at a time when there is a serious budget problem that needs to be dealt with on behalf of the entire community. Let me turn to the first question, which is, 'Is this a debate about whether renewable energy is an important field of activity in which we need to engage in research, development and commercialisation?' and argue that, clearly, we do need to do all of those things, but that is not the question presently before the House this afternoon. Why is it a good thing that renewable energy activities are vigorous and ongoing in Australia and around the world? One good reason is to have a diversity of supply. Electricity is key to modern life. If you are depending solely upon one particular source—whatever that might be; typically in Australia it is coal-fired generation to a lesser extent natural gas and then a range of other sources—or a narrow range of sources, then you have some exposures which you can mitigate if you have options to secure your energy from a broader range of sources. So the general proposition that it makes sense to explore as many alternative sources of energy as possible to mitigate the risk associated with an overreliance on any single source is clearly a sensible proposition. (Continued in Hansard...)

Presented by Allegro Film Productions, this episode of the Science Screen Report shows viewers the state-of-the-art solar power plant in the Mojave Desert near Barstow, Ca. The film begins with shots of solar panels on houses, farm barns, and the commercial solar electric power plant Solar One (01:10), with its solar panel farm. There is a shot of a model of the power plant as well. Computer-controlled heliostats (mirrors) are tested near Albuquerque, NM (02:52) for the Solar One plant. These mirrors reflect energy onto Solar One’s tower with its solar energy receiver. People monitor the system on computers in the plant’s control room (04:50). Aerial footage shows the site of Solar One prior to the completion of construction (05:27), then the film uses graphics to show how the heliostats are arranged based on the location of the sun. Support columns await the installation of the heliostats (07:07). Additional animated graphics are used to show the sun’s energy being captured by the Solar One plant, how water is heated to create steam that drives a turbine generator, and how energy can be stored in an energy storage tank. There is more aerial footage of the completed Solar One plant (11:40) followed by a shot of a hydroelectric power plant on an alpine lake (12:06). The SOLAR Project consists of the Solar One, Solar Two and Solar Tres solar thermal power plants based in the Mojave Desert, United States and Andalucía, Spain. The US Department of Energy (DOE) and a consortium of US utilities built this country's first two large-scale, demonstration solar power towers in the desert near Barstow, California. Solar One/Solar Two have been scrapped since 2009, and Solar Tres is under construction. Solar One was a pilot solar-thermal project built in the Mojave Desert just east of Barstow, CA, USA. It was the first test of a large-scale thermal solar power tower plant. Solar One was designed by the Department of Energy (DOE) (led by Sandia National Laboratories in Livermore, California), Southern California Edison, LA Dept of Water and Power, and California Energy Commission. It was located in Daggett, CA, about 10 miles (16 km) east of Barstow. Solar One's method of collecting energy was based on concentrating the sun's energy onto a common focal point to produce heat to run a steam turbine generator. It had hundreds of large mirror assemblies, or heliostats, that track the sun, reflecting the solar energy onto a tower where a black receiver absorbed the heat. High-temperature heat transfer fluid was used to carry the energy to a boiler on the ground where the steam was used to spin a series of turbines, much like a traditional power plant. In the late 1970s, a competition was held by the DoE to obtain the best heliostat design for the project. Several promising designs were selected and prototypes were built and shipped to the area for testing. Trade-offs involved simplicity of construction to minimize costs for high-volume manufacturing versus the need for a reliable, two-axis tracking system that could maintain focus on the tower. Rigidity of the structure was a major concern in terms of wind load resistance and durability, but shading of the mirrors by support structures was to be avoided. The project produced 10 MW of electricity using 1,818 heliostats of 40 m² (430 ft²) reflective surface area each, with a total area of 72,650 m² (782,000 ft²). Solar One was completed in 1981 and was operational from 1982 to 1986. Later redesigned and renamed Solar Two, it could be seen from Interstate 40 where it covered a 51 hectare (126 acre) site, not including the administration building or rail yard facilities shared with a neighboring plant. Solar One/Two and other nearby solar projects are plainly visible via satellite imaging software at 34°52′18″N 116°50′03″W. During times of high winds, blowing dust is sometimes illuminated by the reflected sunbeams to create an unusual atmospheric phenomenon in the vicinity of the power tower. These beams of light were depicted in several scenes, and a painting, in the 1987 movie Bagdad Cafe, which was filmed nearby. Nevada Solar One shares a similar name to Solar One, however it is quite different. It uses a solar thermal parabolic trough system and generates 64 MW.

John Brumby - New Office of Solar Energy and $30m boost to drive development of renewable energy
A new Office of Solar Energy and a $30 million boost to support renewable energy technology will drive new investment and the development of cleaner energy in Victoria, Premier John Brumby announced today. Visiting Solar System's factory in Abbotsford with Energy and Resources Minister Peter Batchelor, Mr Brumby said the $30 million funding boost would support the development of alternative energy technologies. "This initiative is about partnering with industry to develop the technologies needed for the future to deliver clean energy for Victorian households," Mr Brumby said. "Our Government is rising to the challenge of climate change, supporting new initiatives to cut emissions and creating a climate of new economic opportunity. "The funding will be available for parties interested in developing pilot-scale demonstration projects or research and development proposals for sustainable energy technologies in areas such as solar, wave, geothermal and bio-energy." Mr Brumby said the Victorian Government had committed to cut emissions by at least 20 per cent by 2020 and increase the amount of electricity supply from renewable energy. "The results delivered from these grants will help us produce and operate the technologies we need to make renewable energy sources commercially viable," he said. The grants are part of alternative energy initiatives announced in the Victorian Government's Climate Change White Paper and include $5 million for projects specifically in the Latrobe Valley as part of the Latrobe Valley Advantage Fund. Grant applications are open until September 30. In addition to the $30 million fund, Mr Brumby announced a new Office of Solar Energy to bring together under one umbrella the extensive work being done on solar energy in Victoria. "This new office will become the first point of contact for industry, small business, the community and educational institutes looking for information about Victoria's solar potential and work already underway," Mr Brumby said. "The Office is another important step in positioning Victoria as a global player in solar development. It will be particularly important for assisting potential investors to access information about our comprehensive range of support programs for solar energy." Mr Batchelor said the new office would run through the Department of Primary Industries, providing a first point of contact for solar programs being run by various government agencies. "International interest in Government-supported programs, intense competition for the $100 million Victorian Large Scale Solar Program tender and companies investigating opportunities in regional Victoria, demonstrates huge interest in our solar potential," Mr Batchelor said. "Work underway in Victoria includes mapping of the best locations for solar plants and grant programs to encourage solar energy development. We need to champion these efforts under one banner and that will be the Office of Solar Energy." Mr Brumby and Mr Batchelor visited the Solar Systems' factory to inspect a solar receiver and dish due to be transported to the company's pilot solar station at Bridgewater. "The solar receiver and dish have been produced at the factory and are a great example of how we are making progress in developing the expertise and technology needed to harness our huge solar potential," Mr Batchelor said. Mr Batchelor also announced the appointment of a Medium Scale Solar Working Group, which will examine current barriers to investment and what additional measures are required to encourage the use of solar energy in Victoria. The working group will be chaired by Tony Wood, Director, Clean Energy Program of the William J Clinton Foundation, which was set up by former US President Bill Clinton to focus on worldwide issues such as climate change. Other members include technical experts in the solar and finance industries as well as representatives from the unions, the commercial building sector and the community: Ian Porter -- Alternative Technologies Association Cameron O'Reilly -- Energy Retailers Association of Australia Andrew Blyth -- Energy Networks Association Peter Lunt -- Vic Super Dean Mighell - Electrical Trades Union Mark Twidell -- Australian Solar Institute Mark Clover - ANZ Rod Menzies - Clean Energy Council Damon Moloney - Green Buildings Council For more information on Victoria's solar energy programs and resource visit the Office of Solar Energy Victoria website at www.dpi.vic.gov.au/solar

Energy efficiency initiatives
Mark Thomson, TVS Partnership Australian Government Department of the Environment and Heritage, June 2005 This video should be viewed in the context of the ESD design guide for Australian Government buildings. The ESD design guide gives a basic introduction to ecological sustainability issues and specifically how the built environment affects them. It begins by outlining the Australian position on Ecologically Sustainable Development (ESD) and some key policies relevant to buildings and ESD. See also: more ESD design guide videos Transcript In Ann Street, the major energy efficiency initiative we introduced was bringing a thermosiphon naturally ventilated system into the atrium of the building. So we decreased the need for air conditioned space in the common central area of the building. That enabled us to reduce the amount of air conditioned space and therefore, we were able to use the excisting air conditioning plant more efficiently in other areas. We were also able to get more passive control in the atrium and the entry areas of the building. We also looked at a grid type PV system was also used. We have energy generation on site. The paybacks on that aren't great at the moment, but it's an important initiative to follow through on anyway. Then there are the more simple things like T5 lighting and the other thing we found that was very important was the zoning. Wiring the lighting and other electrical equipment so that they are actually zoned and controlled where required. We set up system where it is hard for people to turn on excess lights. We added simple things like identification on the switches, so people can tell what they are turning on, which can make a big difference.

John Brumby - Solar power station to be built in Victoria's north-west
Victoria is set to have the largest solar power station in Australia with the Victorian Government committing $100 million to a new large-scale solar development in the State's north-west. In Mildura, Mr Brumby announced that the Victorian Government would back a bid by energy company TRUenergy to develop a major new solar plant south of Mildura with $100 million for renewable energy generated. Mr Brumby said TRUenergy's proposal to build the Mallee Solar Park would create 200 new jobs in construction and 20 ongoing jobs, deliver 345 gigawatt hours of clean electricity each year and generate enough power to run 60,000 homes each year. "Together with Victorians, we are rising to the challenge of climate change by driving new initiatives to cut emissions and create a cleaner, greener future for Victorian families," Mr Brumby said. "Our Government's disciplined economic management means Victoria is in a position to tackle climate change by backing new investments in renewable energy to lock-in a sustainable future. "This investment is about capitalising on Victoria's potential to generate renewable energy and forms a key part of our commitment to increase Victoria's electricity supply from large-scale solar power to five per cent by 2020. "The TRUenergy proposal will utilise world's best-practice to create jobs in regional Victoria, cement the northern part of our State as a key solar energy region in Australia and will make a valuable and lasting contribution to our clean, green energy supply." The Government set aside $100 million in funding to support a large-scale solar development last year and it forms a part of its Climate Change White Paper Action Plan, released in July. Under the TRUenergy's proposal a photovoltaic plant will be built on a 600 hectare site about 10 kilometres south of Mildura with construction to be undertaken by Bovis Lend Lease in four stages between 2012 and 2015. "TRUenergy's project is a great example of the significant jobs and investment expected across regional Victoria as a result of our White Paper which will drive new investment of between $6 and $10 billion," Mr Brumby said. "Through our Climate Change White Paper Action Plan we have committed to making Victoria Australia's solar state and aim to support the development of five to 10 large scale solar plants in regional Victoria by 2020. "Under the Action Plan our Government has also committed to cut emissions by at least 20 per cent by 2020 and increase the state's power generated by solar to five per cent." Minister for Energy and Resources Peter Batchelor said TRUenergy's proposal was selected through an independent tender from a strong field of five applicants after it submitted an outstanding proposal under the Victorian Large Scale Solar Project. "This project will use the latest in solar photovoltaic technology, utilising flat-plate, thin film photovoltaic panels which will be made by First Solar, a US based company," Mr Batchelor said. "It will build on Silex's large-scale demonstration photovoltaic solar project planned for near Mildura which is being supported by a $50 million Brumby Labor Government grant." Mr Batchelor said with $100 million from the Victorian Government, the project proponents would become a stand-out applicant for Solar Flagships funding from the Gillard Government. "We have backed this proposal because it has all the right characteristics to deliver major benefits to for communities, for the environment and for a cleaner, greener economy," he said. "We believe it is now a stand-out for funding from the Commonwealth's Solar Flagship Program."
