告内容 

  Australia presents a good case study of environmental policies and the energy transition. This lecture will introduce Australia’s environmental policies and energy system. We will explore a detailed case study of the “Direct Action” subsidy program to reduce emissions, and compare this approach to other available alternatives. The lecture will also review ongoing work on the effect of closing coal-fired power stations on local communities in Australia. Listeners will conduct a brainstorming exercise on potential research topics for both Australia and China.
