The European Union (EU) is embarking on the third phase of its emissions trading scheme, and EU member countries have commenced big changes in their energy systems. Australia is about to start its carbon pricing scheme, and large scale changes in the energy system need to take place if emissions are to be reduced. What are the parallels in discussion and action on climate change and energy policy between the Europe and Australia? What other joint projects should both consider and pursue? The speakers at this symposium will share their insights on climate change and energy policy in the EU and Australia.
