|Title:||Australian Electricity Supply: Orientations to Growth and Prospects for Sustainability||Contributor(s):||Smith, Gregory Owen (author)||Publication Date:||2007||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/11035||Abstract:||In the new competitive order, Australian electricity systems have been oriented to growth of electricity sales based on low margins and the capture of market share. Electricity is a premium fuel. The second law of thermodynamics testifies to this, as does the relationship between coal-fired electricity and the negative externality of greenhouse warming. Electricity prices should reflect its status as a premium fuel. Ease of transition in such a regime would be fostered by the taking up of options for energy efficiency and renewable sources of supply.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||Re-inventing Sustainability: A Climate for Change - Conference of the Australia and New Zealand Society for Ecological Economics, Noosa, Australia, 3rd - 6th July, 2007||Conference Details:||Re-inventing Sustainability: A Climate for Change - Conference of the Australia and New Zealand Society for Ecological Economics, Noosa, Australia, 3rd - 6th July, 2007||Source of Publication:||2007 ANZSEE Conference Papers (Theme 4: Resource Management), p. 1-11||Publisher:||Australia and New Zealand Society for Ecological Economics (ANZSEE)||Place of Publication:||Online||Field of Research (FOR):||140214 Public Economics- Publically Provided Goods||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||910204 Industry Costs and Structure||HERDC Category Description:||E2 Non-Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://anzsee.org/anzsee2007papers/Abstracts/Smith.Greg.pdf
