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.

Water: Lifeblood of Energy
The half-hour documentary "Water: The Lifeblood of Energy" describes the connection between water and energy and how cities and utilities across the western United States are using combinations of collaboration, conservation, and new technology to squeeze more use out of every precious drop of water. "All types of energy require water. With the greater need for energy, the demand for water will continue to increase," said Executive Producer and EERC Senior Research Manager Bethany Kurz. "How can we balance the need for water in energy with water for crops, households, and industries? How can we make do with the water we have? These are all critical questions addressed throughout the documentary." "Energy and water are inseparable issues," said EERC Director Gerald Groenewold. "Energy is totally dependent on water and vice versa. We have traditionally taken water for granted, and we cannot afford to do that any longer. It has to be considered in terms of energy production and distribution," he said. Groenewold added that there will be ever-increasing conflicts between the energy industry, municipalities, and agriculture industry over the same water sources. "An intelligent, objective approach leading to water use strategies needs to be developed to provide long-term sustainability for each of these associated stakeholders," he said. "Water: The Lifeblood of Energy" is a production of Prairie Public Broadcasting, in collaboration with the EERC's Northern Great Plains Water Consortium® (NGPWC). The NGPWC is a partnership between the EERC, the U.S. Department of Energy National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL), and key stakeholders representing power generation utilities, oil and gas companies, industry, municipalities, and other entities interested in addressing critical water issues in the north-central United States. Funding for the documentary is provided by NETL, NGPWC partners, and the members of Prairie Public.

Renewable energy (2min)
Solar, wind and gas - renewable energy is helping to power South Australia.
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.

BP Receives Deepwater Exploration Rights off Australia
OIL giant BP has secured its first permits in its own rights to explore for petroleum off Australia's coast, nine months after its Macondo well spewed millions of barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico. Resources and Energy Minister Martin Ferguson yesterday announced four of the seven offshore permits released in the latest round would go to the British petroleum giant for exploration in the Bight Basin off South Australia. The permits -- the first to be issued in the frontier Ceduna sub-basin in over a decade -- will allow BP to carry out the most ambitious geological analysis ever undertaken in the Bight, but at the cost of more onerous conditions on its work program. "They are subject to additional conditions, and so they should be," Mr Ferguson said. A White House report into the explosion on the Deepwater Horizon rig last April, which killed 11 workers, concluded BP lacked safeguards to ensure cost-cutting did not compromise safety and had repeatedly altered well designs and procedures. BP had overall responsibility for the Macondo well, drilled to 1500m below sea level, which spilled an estimated 4.9 billion barrels of oil across US Gulf waters, beaches and wetlands. The Ceduna sub-basin in the Bight, located 180km off southern Australia, covers 24,570km and ranges in depths from 140m to 4600m. Mr Ferguson could not comment on the special conditions imposed on BP's new permits, ahead of their gazettal later this week. But he said BP's seismic exploration program, due to start this time next year, and drilling activity, not expected until 2013-14, would only get the go-ahead after further rounds of environmental and regulatory scrutiny. BP Australia spokesman Jamie Jardine said the company was happy to comply with the extra conditions, since it had already committed to taking on board all the lessons from Deepwater Horizon. "There isn't another company now with, sadly, the amount of expertise we have in responding to a spill," he said. Yesterday's announcement also comes ahead of Mr Ferguson's release of his department's review of an action plan from PTTEP Australasia, the Thai exploration company that was responsible for Australia's worst oil spill in 25 years. For over 10 weeks from August 2009, its Montara oilfield leaked oil and gas into the Timor Sea, 250km off the northwest coast of Australia, affecting 90,000sq km. Two months ago, Mr Ferguson said he would await the outcome of the departmental review before considering whether to cancel their titles in Australia. http://www.theaustralian.com.au/national-affairs/bp-wins-right-to-explore-the-bight/story-fn59niix-1225989872091

Industry Steel In Cambodia 2018
In 2006, Cambodia's mineral resources remained, to a large extent, unexplored. Between 2003 and 2006, however, foreign investors from Australia, China, South Korea, Thailand, and the United States began to express their interest in Cambodia's potential for offshore oil and gas as well as such land-based metallic minerals as bauxite, copper, gold, and iron ore, and such industrial minerals as gemstones and limestone.[1] The identified mineral resources in Cambodia were bauxite, carbonate rocks, natural gas, gemstones, gold, manganese, petroleum, phosphate rock, salt, silica, and zircon. With the exception of carbonate rocks and gemstones, the country's mineral resources were largely unexploited. To attract domestic and foreign mining companies to invest in the mining sector, the Law of Minerals Management and Mining of Cambodia was promulgated by the government on July 13, 2001. The Ministry of Industry, Mines and Energy (MIME) is the main government agency that implements the country's mineral law and policy. The MIME's Department of Geology and Mines and Department of Energy are responsible for developing the country's mineral resources, providing mining assistance to the private sector, and administering mining-related regulations and inspections. The Cambodian Development Council (CDC) is the government agency that grants exploration licenses to investors. If exploration is successful, investors are required to present a master project plan to the CDC before being granted a mining license. The amount of investment approved for mining projects by the CDC totaled $181 million in 2005

The Natural Drivers of Climate by Des Pane
Des is a Mechanical Engineer who has worked extensively in the design and construction of most of the coal-fired power stations in Queensland. His last few working years were spent in the Energy Department of the Queensland Government. He has been an avid follower of the Global Warming/Climate Change issue for over 40 years. Though he is not a Scientist, he has read more than 50 books and innumerable papers, articles, reports and blogs on the many issues of the topic. This research forms the background of his presentation which, because of time constraints, will deal with only one aspect of Climate Change. Though he doubts the need for the current dis-organised rush to de-carbonise, he does consider that fossil fuels should be used more wisely and economically and in more targeted ways so as to prolong the availability of these finite resources. The use of non-fossil forms of energy must therefore grow, but should grow only in thoughtfully considered ways and in time frames which do not damage economies.
