ACT, NSW Greens visit Barnaby Joyce’s electorate to celebrate jobs and investment from renewables plan the deputy PM called “crazy”.
Australian Energy Regulator report links market operator’s flawed forecasting methods with blackouts, high prices.
A comedian’s take on the “ridiculous” energy market business model, the win-lose equation of rooftop solar, and why our PM is the wind turbine that won’t spin.
CSIRO and network owners say key driver of shift to 100% renewables will not be wind farms or solar parks, but rooftop solar and battery storage installed by homes and business. This can and should be done – but policy, and politics, need to change.
The way electricity prices were set in the wholesale market has changed dramatically in just one year. So, who’s playing games with their gas and hydro power?
PM suggests public money could be used to subsidise gas pipelines in northern Australia, as well as underwriting rail plans of Indian coal giant Adani.

If the world is to decarbonise, Australia’s key trading partners of ours must be part of that shift. That means zero emissions hydrogen fuels – powered by wind and solar – replacing coal and gas exports.
Plunging wind and solar costs put “hydrogen” economy at tipping point, with Australia urged to lay groundwork for opportunity to develop “green fuel” exports to replace coal and gas, a market potentially worth $40bn a year. ARENA likely to make it one of its key investment priorities this year.
