Beyond Zero Emissions (BZE) launched its award-winning Zero Carbon Australia 2020 Stationary Energy Plan to a packed meeting at Perth Town Hall on March 14.

BZE executive director Matthew Wright outlined the Western Australian aspects of the plan, which was developed to show how Australia could reduce its stationary energy greenhouse gas emissions to zero by 2020, using a mix of commercially available renewable energy sources, primarily concentrating solar thermal and wind.

Other speakers were state Nationals MP Phil Gardiner, former state Labor planning and infrastructure minister Alannah MacTiernan, federal Greens Senator Scott Ludlam, WorleyParsons Sustainability and EcoNomicsTM executive director Professor Paul Hardisty and Sustainable Energy Now chairperson Steve Gates.
