The ACT Government continues to implement world-leading climate change and energy policies, on its pathway to net zero emissions by 2045 at the latest. Moving beyond 100 per cent renewable electricity now requires policy attention in harder to mitigate sectors such as transport and natural gas use. This presentation will discuss ACT climate change and energy policy and the oftentimes challenging but always interesting process of public policy development.
