This website/calculator was developed by ClimateWorks Australia, a not-for-profit organisation working to assist government and business to reduce Australia&aposs greenhouse gas emissions. We are keen to make this resource as useful as possible, and for that we&aposre asking users to provide some details and feedback below. Thanks! The ClimateWorks team.
As the science on climate change and its impacts on the global economy become clearer and more urgent, governments are increasingly looking ways to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. The largest source of these emissions comes from the combustion of fossil fuels—including coal, oil and natural gas—to produce electricity, an effort that in 2012 made up about 40 percent of emissions globally and 32 percent in the United States. More and more, countries are seeking to lower emissions in the electricity
ClimateWorks is keen to partner with researchers to understanding of the challenges and opportunities in the transition to a low carbon economy. Please use this form to get in touch with us. Australian industry is able to more than double production by 2050 without using any additional energy.
Fifth, the benefits of a natural gas combined cycle plant are not dependent on the natural gas fracking revolution in the United States. Combined cycle plants are highly beneficial even in Europe, where natural gas prices are higher and fracking more limited. The problem in Europe is that the price of CO2 emissions in the European Trading System is far too low to encourage production of electricity by gas rather than coal.Second, renewable incentives in the absence of a suitably high carbon dioxide price ar
Top first class engineers take years or even decades to get to their positions and often make 150,000- 200,000 per year. The career path means that there is both room to grow and vacancies occurring at every level. With close to 30, 000 Power Engineers employed in Canada with the median age being over 45 years old, we expect to see over 11,000 job vacancies with only 8,000 expected new power engineers graduating from colleges such as BCIT, NAIT and Parkland College.
