Energy report launch | Melbourne



13 December 2018


Isabella Fraser Room, State Library of Victoria,



The United States Studies Centre at the University of Sydney invites you to attend the Melbourne launch of its latest research report “It Doesn't Have to Be This Way: Australia's Energy Crisis, America's Energy Surplus.”

Energy prices in Australia are two to three times more expensive than in the United States, but Australia’s energy crisis goes beyond home electricity bills, threatening Australian businesses and the nation’s prosperity. The Centre’s new report examines the indicators of economic loss from Australia’s energy crisis and compare these with the economic tailwinds of more affordable energy in the United States.

This research is part of a project supported by Dow Chemical Australia and Chemistry Australia. Lead author Dr Alex Robson brings together economic data, analysis of the key economic indicators and case studies with compelling findings.

Dr Robson will be joined at both events by USSC CEO Simon Jackman and Dow Australia & New Zealand President Louis Vega. Samantha Read, CEO of Chemistry Australia will join a panel discussion.
