The $240 billion cuppa

When you make a cuppa today, 90 per cent of the electricity used is generated by coal and gas but by 2050, the electricity you use could be generated by over 20 sources with an energy transformation afoot.

Next time you boil the kettle in your kitchen or office, have a think about this: over 90 per cent of the electricity used today is being generated by coal and gas. By 2050, when you do the same thing – make a cuppa – the electricity you use could be generated by over 20 energy sources and technologies. That’s a big change.

In some future scenarios we could be looking at an even split between renewable and conventional coal and gas power stations – with some potentially using carbon capture and storage technologies, significantly decreasing our carbon emissions.
