Towards a low emissions future

Government releases Low Emissions Technology Statement 2021

2 November 2021

The Low Emissions Technology Statement 2021 sets out Australia's technology-led approach to accelerating the development of technologies essential to achieving net zero emissions. Other than adding low cost solar to big ticket items like green steel, carbon capture and storage, and cheap hydrogen, there was little new in the document – except heat pumps were listed as an emerging technology being developed internationally. Refrigerants and HFCs were not mentioned.
