Survey seeks answers to understand our energy future

Monday, 24 August 2020

What does Australia’s energy future look like?

What do Australians want it to look like?

These are just some of the questions that Dr Hedda Askland from the School of Humanities and Social Science at the University of Newcastle and Dr Alfonso Arranz from Melbourne School of Engineering at the University of Melbourne are seeking to answer in their research project aiming to better understand the debate and community involvement around energy transition.

The researchers have today launched a survey and are seeking participants to better understand the attitudes, beliefs and understanding of organisations, key opinion leaders and individuals when it comes to low-emissions technologies.

The survey will form part of a multi-phased research project as the researchers work to map out and forecast what the future of energy in Australia looks like.

The survey is open until 7 September and available online here.
