This is a case study of Australia's efforts towards deep decarbonization. John Thwaites focuses on reaching net zero emissions in buildings by 2050, and the three pillars to do so: energy efficiency, renewable energy, and zero carbon. He notes barriers such as cost, capacity (e.g. skills and knowledge), and motivation (the human factor), as well as bad policy. Government agency coordination, mandated standards, and incentives are among the best approaches cited. Thwaites also notes a few tools to achieve these targets.
