Source: Climate Institute
"This paper presents an Australian perspective on the opportunities and barriers to clean technology development, deployment and transfer, both within and between countries. The research is based on interviews with individuals from government, the private sector, academia, industry groups and other stakeholders. The research focussed on five key themes: (i) national priorities for clean technology development and deployment; (ii) barriers to technology development and deployment within Australia; (iii) opportunities and challenges presented by the domestic policy setting; (iv) barriers to technology transfer between countries; and (v) priorities for the post-2012 climate change agreement."
