Alan Pears AM is a well-known clean energy and climate researcher, commentator and educator. He has worked with governments, business and community groups on clean energy policy, programs and projects for the past
four decades.

Alan writes regularly for the conversation website, has a
regular column in the Alternative Technology Association's ReNew magazine and appears in media.

He has played key roles in development of Australia's
appliance efficiency, building energy efficiency and climate response policies, and has also been involved in many practical projects, from designing green appliances and buildings, to advising households and businesses on strategies to cut emissions and costs.

Interesting times continue in Australia on the politics of energy, an issue that remains pivotal to climate change action. Alan Pears provides a perspective on the major drivers of energy policy and then looks at what we can do - not just politically, but in our own households.
