CRC research ‘on track’ to achieve national carbon cuts

A low-carbon future for Australia is not “pie in the sky” fantasy but a reality based on research leadership and proven technologies, a national research centre chief has told an energy conference in Adelaide.

Deo Prasad, chief executive of the Cooperative Research Centre for Low Carbon Living, said that more than 80 per cent of Australia’s home energy requirements could be met through a combination of solar photovoltaics and batteries.

He said the CRC was in its final year of a six-year funding programme and was “well on track” to meet its goal of providing research results that could achieve a 10 megatonne reduction in the country’s carbon emissions by 2020.
