Energiewende in Australien: Polarisierungstendenzen in der Diskurskultur?

  • Franziska MeyEmail author
Chapter
Part of the Energietransformation book series (ENETRA)

Zusammenfassung

Dem internationalen Trend vieler Länder folgend, befindet sich auch Australien inmitten einer Energiewende. Diese wird von einer nationalen und internationalen Klimapolitik als auch der deutlich gestiegenen Konkurrenzfähigkeit der Erneuerbare Energien angetrieben. Der Erfolg der neuen Technologien hat in den letzten Jahren zu anhaltenden politischen Auseinandersetzungen über die Energiesicherheit und gestiegene Stromkosten geführt.
