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, policymakers 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 policymakers to discuss challenges facing the energy sector.
