Abstract

This thesis argues the importance of Australia implementing a carbon tax and an emissions trading scheme to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the Australian fossil fuel industry. The argument draws on a comparative legal examination of the Australian and Norwegian circumstances, legislation and policies, including reviews of the regulatory measures for carbon pricing, and to foster renewable energy (RE) and carbon capture and storage (CCS). It concludes that the Norwegian experience with economy-wide broad-based carbon pricing drives investments in RE and CCS, and that all of these measures in combination can help Australia to achieve its Paris Agreement targets.
