Question time: Renewable Energy

Listen to Question time: Renewable Energy

Both environmental and economic arguments make a case for renewable energy. But how is Australia placed to launch into that future? Our expert panellists take your questions on the decentralised electricity movement, support (or lack thereof) of our renewable energy sector, renewable energy initiatives overseas, and climate change – as both challenge and opportunity.

Hear an hour of questions served up to sustainability consultant Liam O'Keefe, ClimateWorks Australia executive director Anna Skarbek, environment and energy policy expert Matthew Warren and Australian Solar Council CEO John Grimes.

Question time

When you think ‘question time’, perhaps you picture rowdy politicians cussing each other out. But in our new series, we’re putting the dignity back into proceedings … along with a generous amount of time. It’s one full hour of pure Q&A between you, our audience, moderator Madeleine Morris, and a panel of experts in the evening’s chosen field of inquiry. Get informed about the key issues of our time, in the lead-up to the Victorian state election.

For Programme Three 2014, Question Time tackles three critical topics: renewable energy, jobs of the future, and the always-fraught issue of transport, now and into the future.

Hosted by Madeleine Morris.

Presented in partnership with Arts House.
