The TPA was set up to inform decision making processes and address key controversies in the energy field. It aims to provide authoritative and accessible reports that set very high standards for rigour and transparency. The subject of the report was chosen after extensive consultation with energy sector stakeholders. It addresses the following question:(More)
Executive Summary The Garnaut Review will emphasise innovation in new energy technologies and processes as a key element in the delivery of deep cuts in carbon emissions. Consequently, it matters to understand both drivers for and barriers to innovation in the stationary energy sector which accounts for 50% of Australia's greenhouse gas emissions. This(More)
In the recent years, e-participation has emerged as an important area particularly in e-government and e-governance. Proliferation of the Internet and mobile technologies has only accelerated the need for more e-participation from citizens around the world. Billions of global citizens are calling for transparencies and better governance without corruptions.(More)
The absence of reliable access to clean energy and the services it provides imposes a large disease burden on low-income populations and impedes prospects for development. Furthermore, current patterns of fossil-fuel use cause substantial ill-health from air pollution and occupational hazards. Impending climate change, mainly driven by energy use, now also(More)
The findings from a study of the social integration of a national sample of 370 older persons with mental retardation were reviewed. Individuals were selected from a national sample of all facilities owned, operated, or licensed by developmental disabilities agencies having one or more persons 63 years of age or older with mental retardation (N = 235).(More)
The paper develops a way of characterising technological change in energy systems in a form suitable for economic analysis. The focus is on technological responses to climate change. A large array of non-carbon options is emerging, though their costs are generally high relative to those of fossil fuels. However, costs are also declining relatively with(More)
iii Executive summary Context DTI are currently undertaking a review of support for innovation of new and renewable energy technologies, to ensure that policies are well integrated and coherent, and are providing appropriate support to the full range of technologies. This paper feeds into the review, with a particular focus on the early stage technologies.(More)
