Regional and sectoral transition research

In Progress

The Regional and Sectoral Transitions Research program aims to create and disseminate knowledge informing the rapid, orderly and just phase-out of coal production. The program brings together a wide range of Australian and German researchers with extensive expertise and experience in applied research on coal transition policy challenges and priorities. 

Research priorities include:

  • Strengthening understanding the speed and scale of coal phase out required to achieve global and national emission reduction targets 
  • Clarifying and communicating coal transition trends, drivers and scenarios at global,  national and regional levels
  • Identifying policy challenges and priority responses for: 
  • Accelerating the phase-out of coal fired power generation
    • Protecting energy security and affordability
    • Creating a just transition for vulnerable workers and communities
    • Strengthening economic and employment outcomes
    • Securing resources required for financing the coal transition
    • Building public support for accelerating the just and well managed phase out of coal
