    Australian Industry Energy Transitions Initiative (ETI)

    The Australian Industry Energy Transition Initiative supports Australian industry to develop pathways and take action towards net zero emissions across critical supply chains of the Australian economy.

    Supply chains:

    • Steel
    • Aluminium
    • Liquified natural gas
    • Selected metals (such as copper, nickel, lithium)
    • Chemicals (especially fertilisers & explosives)

    These ‘hard-to-abate’ sectors form part of a broader energy system that must be rapidly transformed if planetary warming is to remain below 1.5°C or even 2°C in line with the Paris Agreement.

    As momentum builds to decarbonise global energy systems, there are emerging opportunities for Australian industry that will be explored through the initiative. In addition to considering opportunities across the Australian economy, the initiative will have a regional orientation to Western Australia.
