Submission to the Greater Sydney Commission
Towards Our Greater Sydney 2056
https://www.greater.sydney/

Sydney’s plan for 2056 is completely energy illiterate. Firstly, Australia’s east coast has reached peak conventional gas while Queensland’s coal seam gas is squandered in LNG exports. Secondly, old coal fired power stations like Hazelwood have closed down while renewable capacity plus pumped hydro storage has not been built up over the last 10 years due to a continuing Parliamentary debating club on energy policy and carbon trading (or lack thereof). Thirdly, the IEA has warned that – if oil prices remain low – not enough investments will be done in the oil&gas sector, leading to a supply gap in 2020. Therefore, all high flying plans based on an immigration intake of 1.5 million over the next 20 years are largely academic and will – if implemented – lead to huge mis-investments, just like the road tunnels already under construction.

On the occasion of Garnaut’s presentation on 28/2/2017
TRUMP AND GLOBALISATION: WILL THE RETREAT FROM OPEN TRADE DAMAGE GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT?
http://www.internationalaffairs.org.au/events/trump-and-globalisation-will-the-retreat-from-open-trade-damage-global-development/

I handed over a 4 page paper to Ross Garnaut, describing the different phases of peaking oil production, drawing attention to the US shale oil peak in Bakken, the oil peak in China, Shell’s declining earnings due to low oil prices, the reduction of CAPEX in oil and gas fields, OPEC’s production and finally a graph of oil consumption and production curves in the Asia Pacific – to be filled in for the next 20 years.

In Q&A I asked at which oil price globalization will go backwards. Garnaut answered that there is no problem with petroleum as we are going to have renewables.
