The editors have assembled 15 articles by experts which examine the problems of this country's energy policy, and the confusion which surrounds the issues.

Articles also touch on alternative and nuclear energy issues.

Most of Australia¿s energy supply still heavily relies on its traditional, non-renewable resources of coal, oil and gas ¿ yet Australia has plentiful clean energy renewable resources including solar, wind, geothermal, bioenergy, wave and tidal power.

A secure supply of affordable, reliable and environmentally sustainable energy is essential to the nation¿s future growth and prosperity.
