The Australian Association for the Study of Peak Oil and Gas is a nationwide network of professionals working (as volunteers) to reduce our oil vulnerability. We aim to bring the probabilities, risks and opportunities that Peak Oil presents to the attention of decision-makers.
We are part of a network of organisations around the world affiliated with the original Association for the Study of Peak Oil and Gas (ASPO) founded by Colin Campbell and Kjell Aleklett. The formation of ASPO-Australia is an initiative of the Sustainable Transport Coalition. Our patron is Hon. Andrew McNamara, previously chair of the Queensland Govt Oil Vulnerability Task Force and past Queensland Minister for Climate Change, Sustainability and Innovation
There are groups in most capital cities and some regional centres. We also have a range of different working groups to focus on the impacts and opportunities Peak Oil will bring to different sections of the community and the economy. We welcome suggestions and volunteers.
