The overall objective is to review carbon pricing and renewable energy schemes generally and with application to Australia, to understand the effectiveness and cost efficiency of how they reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and to suggest changes that could be made to provide a more cost effective outcome.

This is to be achieved by developing an emissions model, to analyse subsidies, incentives and penalties and their relationships with actual GHG emissions, initially on a static basis, year by year, and then on a dynamic basis to test the sensitivities of changes to inputs on levels of GHG emissions.
