In November 2010, Ross Garnaut was commissioned to provide an update to his 2008 Climate Change Review for the Australian Government and community. Professor Garnaut will release eight update papers ahead of delivering his final report to the Prime Minister by 31 May 2011.

CEDA welcomes Professor Garnaut to our podium in Sydney where he will launch Update Paper 7: Low-emissions technology and the innovation challenge.

The paper examines recent developments in low-emissions technologies in the energy generation and transport sectors, both in Australia and globally. It also assesses recent policy trends, and recommends settings which can provide the best conditions for innovation and lowering the cost of Australia's transition to a low-carbon economy.
