The 2012 Douglas Copland Lecture

Transitioning to a Low Emissions Future: Implications for Global Energy systems

In honour of its founder, Sir Douglas Copland, the biennial lecture series commemorates CEDA's achievements as a body dedicated to informing, influencing and raising the standard of discussion on public policy. The lecture provides a platform for international experts to share and debate their ideas with an audience of business leaders, policy makers and leading academics.

CEDA is delighted to announce Professor Ottmar Edenhofer will deliver the 2012 Douglas Copland Lecture.

In his inaugural speaking engagement in Australia, Professor Edenhofer, a German economist whose field of expertise includes climate change policy, energy economics and policy, will assess what the impacts will be on global energy supply chain as we continue to transition towards a low emissions future.

The 2012 Douglas Copland Lecture will provide you with an opportunity to hear first hand how other nations are framing climate and energy policies, and to determine how this might influence Australia's own long term response.

MEET THE SPEAKER

Professor Ottmar Edenhofer
Deputy Director and Chief Economist, Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research and Co-Chair, Working Group 3, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)

Professor Ottmar Edenhofer is deputy-director and chief economist at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research. He is also professor of the Economics of Climate Change at the Technical University, Berlin, and Co-Chair of Working Group 3 of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007.

Professor Edenhofer's research explores the impact of induced technological change on mitigation costs and mitigation strategies, as well as the design of instruments for climate and energy policy. He was a Lead Author for the Fourth Assessment Report of the IPCC from 2004 until 2007 and recently co-edited the IPCC Special Report on Renewable Energy Sources and Climate Change Mitigation (SRREN). His research has influenced the Stern Review on the Economics of Climate Change substantially (particularly chapters 10 and 13).

He has published articles in Science, Energy Journal, Energy Economics, Energy Policy, and other peer-reviewed journals and authored a number of books. Together with Sir Nicholas Stern, Professor Edenhofer was a contributing author to the recently published book "The Economics of Climate Change in China: Towards a Low Carbon Economy".
