Event Details

Carbon emissions: subsidies, incentives or taxes - what makes effective policy?

Australian governments, both State and Federal, have tried hundreds of policies and programs over the past decade to reduce carbon emissions in the energy sector. A new study by Grattan Institute to be launched at the seminar will investigate their impact and identify the patterns. This seminar will feature Grattan Institute authors, energy policy experts, and politicians discussing what lessons we can learn for Australian policy. What programs are worth keeping, and what programs should be set up, with or without the carbon price currently proposed by the Federal Government?
