Leadership Forum on energy transition
The Leadership Forum on energy transition was a Chatham house event at the University of Sydney. The forum brought business leaders and some of the most well-known Australians together to discuss the pending energy transition as implementation of the Paris Agreement. One section of the meeting involved expert input on science, on Australian mitiation options and on a fair transition for the mining workers. The Australian-German Climate & Energy College provided the science input. Please find our slide set below. Fee free to re-use it. Make sure to appropriately acknowledge the source, as some slides are borrowed from the track0.org initiative.
