The challenge that has been set for the world’s nations is to achieve “net zero by 2050” – to limit global warming to < 2 degrees C. The presentation seeks to develop a realistic high-level analysis and model of the transition to technological “net zero by 2050” for Australia, to use this model to provide a basis for a plan for the transition to 2050, and broadly quantify the magnitude of the tasks ahead.

The approach is to:
• Understand which parts of the economy produce CO2
• Model electricity as it is generated today, and how it can be decarbonized by 2050
• Model all energy consumption in the economy and how fossil fuel use can be eliminated by 2050 via renewably generated electricity, and green hydrogen and its derivatives.
