Laura Eadie interviewed for Beyond Zero Emissions (BZE) radio show about think tanks and Going solar
With a strong science and solutions focus, the BZE radio program interviews specialists from around the world, live from 8.30 – 9am, Friday (Aust EST). Guests are specialists in fields such as climate science, renewable energy, energy efficiency, transport, forestry and land use change, climate change politics and policy.
CPD’s research director for its Sustainable economy program answered some tough questions from Matt Grantham and Anthony Daniel, about the Going solar report, the ‘role of think tanks in the community’ and whether the perceived position of a think tank on the political spectrum is the most important factor determining its credibility.
Laura is co-author of the report ‘Going solar: renewing Australia’s electricity options‘, which looks at electricity prices and renewable energy policy, the rapid drop in solar technology costs, and the cost and risks associated with ‘business as usual’.
Going solar looks at the key role rooftop solar will play in our future electricity system, and makes a series of practical policy recommendations to maximise the benefits of rooftop solar while minimising the cost of integrating it into the electricity system.
