Renewable Energy for Australia’s Security: Integrating Domestic and Foreign Policy
In the last few years, debate has raged over Australia’s energy, environment and climate change policies.
While the primary technologies of renewable energy generation and storage are well understood, the challenge of how to export this energy remains.
As a wealthy and capable middle power, Australia has a mix of interests and responsibility in regional and international leadership.
Tackling climate change is not only a matter of costs: productive energy change will grow and strengthen Australia’s economy, foreign relations, and security. Unifying domestic and foreign policy on the energy front would be a bold step forward to a strong, vibrant Australia in the 21st century.
