Achieving a successful transition to a low emission future for energy and transportation
An effective transition to a low emission New Zealand requires a transformation of our transportation and energy systems as well as a shift in the behaviours of the many actors that interact with these systems.
Join us to hear from Simon Corbell as we look to understand the role that policy plays in accelerating decarbonisation. We will explore how policy can be used to influence behavioural change across all aspects of our society, and examine the role local and central government has in planning and providing for low-emission transport and energy systems.
Simon Corbell is the renewable energy advocate for Victoria and the former Environment Minister for the Australian Capital Territory. Simon had a key role in driving decarbonisation and climate resilience projects in Canberra, and has been recognised for his work in championing Australia’s clean energy transition. He will be speaking from his experience in advocating for strong climate change policy that has seen the ACT achieve international recognition as a best-practice jurisdiction in climate change and renewable energy policy.
This event is co-hosted by the University of Auckland’s Public Policy Institute and the Energy Centre at the University of Auckland Business School, and presented with the support of Vector.
