Abstract

Historically Australia’s ample supply of coal has underpinned its power system. Competing countries however have used a variety of different energy sources and, as a result of this diversity, many have a more resilient power system to provide future electrical power. this report looks at Australia’s global position with respect to its resource-rich competitors.
