There is an urgent need to redesign energy policy and law in Australia and Japan in order to promote innovation and achieve deep decarbonisation. This is necessary to meet the Paris Agreement targets which include zero net emissions shortly after 2050.

We invite leading Japanese and Australian scholars, policy makers and entrepreneurs to share their experience and perspectives on energy policy issues in Japan and Australia. The Dialogue will provide a high-level forum for energy scholars and policy makers to discuss challenges facing the energy sector.

Key topics

The emphasis is collaboration on key topics relevant to Australia and Japan.

  • Achieving high levels of renewables and ensuring energy security
  • Issues of transmission and distribution regulation
  • Competition law in an era of rising renewables
  • Electric Vehicles – Law and policy issues
  • Trade in renewable energy – Hydrogen Trade and the Asian Super Grid
  • Energy storage – Regulatory issues in Australian and Japanese contexts
  • The Evolution of legal and policy mechanisms for renewable energy support in Australia and Japan
