原标题:澳大利亚将投资130亿美元用于研发减排技术

中国石化新闻网讯 据油气新闻9月23日消息称,澳大利亚能源部长周一表示,该国计划在未来10年投资180亿澳元(合130亿美元)用于研发减少碳排放的技术,以应对气候变化。

能源部长安格斯·泰勒表示,政府将重点投资于氢、能源储存、低碳钢和铝、碳捕获和储存以及土壤碳封存等领域,并制定了这些技术的成本目标。

截至2019年底,该国已经完成了《巴黎气候协定》承诺的一半目标,即到2030年在2005年的基础上减排26%至28%。

根据周一发布的摘录,泰勒将于周二在堪培拉发表演讲时说:“澳大利亚不能也不应该为了减排而损害本国经济。”

该计划旨在将电池存储成本降低至每兆瓦时100澳元以下,将碳捕获和存储成本降至每吨20澳元以下,并将土壤中碳的测量成本降低到每年每公顷3澳元以下,以鼓励农民改变他们的土地管理方式。

就低排放钢铁生产而言,其目标是将成本降至每吨900澳元以下,而绿色铝的成本则削减至每吨2700澳元以下。

Australia to invest $13 billion in energy technology to cut emissions

Australia plans to invest A$18 billion ($13 billion) over the next 10 years in technologies to cut carbon emissions in the fight against climate change, the country’s energy minister said on Monday.

The government will focus on investing in hydrogen, energy storage, low carbon steel and aluminium, carbon capture and storage, and carbon sequestration in soil, with cost targets for those technologies, Energy Minister Angus Taylor said.

At the end of 2019, the country was half way to meeting its Paris climate accord commitment to cut emissions by 26% to 28% from its 2005 level by 2030.

“Australia can’t and shouldn’t damage its economy to reduce emissions,” Taylor was set to say in a speech in Canberra on Tuesday, according to excerpts released on Monday.

The plan seeks to cut the cost of battery storage to less than A$100 per megawatt hour, lower the cost of carbon capture and storage to less than A$20 per tonne, and reduce the cost of measuring carbon in soil to less than A$3 per hectare per year to encourage farmers to change their land management practices.

For low emissions steel production, the goal is to cut costs to less than A$900 per tonne and for green aluminium to less than A$2,700 per tonne.
