The Energy Mix: Low-carbon pathways to 2050
This document explores the development of the energy system to date. It also looks forward to better understand the roles of markets, technology and policy in shaping the global energy mix towards a low carbon society as envisaged in Vision 2050. It highlights the significant risk of lock-in of the GHG emissions trajectory and that an energy policy framework is required to secure a pathway to vision 2050 outcome. Carbon pricing has a critical role to play and the policy framework needs to be broad in scope and effective in its application through the economy.
