The Future of Energy

How important are all sides of the trilemma?

“We want the impossible!”

Australian business executives know what they want from their energy system…they want it all! And it is this ‘trilemma’ of system security, price volatility and emissions that has been the subject of great debate in the public realm.

63% of respondents rated energy reliability as highly or extremely important; 87% indicated that curbing greenhouse gas emissions was either extremely or very important; while 71% said that either cutting prices was very important, or that they didn’t want to pay too much more for their energy. High expectations indeed.
