Bridging the Gap: A Practical Plan for a low-cost, low-emissions energy future

How can Hong Kong play its part in China meeting its commitment to reduce the carbon intensity of its economy to 40 to 45% below 2005 levels by 2020? Tony Wood will explain ideas proposed for Australia to support low carbon electricity generation which are put forward in the ‘Building the Bridge’ July 2012 report which he authored for the Grattan Institute. There will then be the opportunity to discuss how Hong Kong, working with Mainland China, might be able to take advantage of these ideas.

Tony Wood is the Energy Program Director of the Grattan Institute. He has deep experience in the energy sector. He worked at Origin Energy for 11 years, and was an adviser to the first Garnaut climate change review. He is also program director of Clean Energy Projects at the Clinton Foundation.
