New Research Shows CSIRO Misleading Australians On Energy Costs

“Australia’s decision makers have deluded themselves for far too long that the CSIRO’s GenCost modelling is an accurate and reliable basis to design Australia’s energy future. It has meant we have been misled for too long on the true cost of the energy options on the table,” said Scott Hargreaves, Executive Director of the Institute of Public Affairs. Today, the

The Ruinous Cost Of Free Energy: Why An Electricity System Built On Renewables Is The Most Expensive Of All Options

Download the research reportDownload Australia previously benefited from some of the lowest consumer electricity prices in the industrialised world, but it now has some of the highest. This paper shows that an electricity supply system built on a foundation of baseload generation – that which provides power 24/7 to the grid to meet base energy needs – results in the

CSIRO GenCost Misleads Australians With Flawed Energy Cost Model

“The CSIRO’s latest GenCost report has again relied on the discredited levelised cost of electricity methodology to calculate energy system costs. This gives Australians and policymakers alike a false understanding of the cost of our energy future,” said Scott Hargreaves, Executive Director of the Institute of Public Affairs. The CSIRO’s annual GenCost report released today, follows IPA research, published in

Analysis Of The Employment Consequences Of A Net Zero Target In Queensland

In February 2024, the Queensland state government introduced the Clean Economy Jobs Bill 2024 into the Legislative Assembly. This bill will enshrine targets to reduce emissions by 30 per cent below 2005 levels by 2030, 75 per cent below 2005 levels by 2035, and net zero emissions by 2050. This report finds that the policy and legislation enshrining a net
