Latest CSIRO GenCost report shows wind and solar still easily cheapest electricity generation – even when storage and network costs added for 90% renewable grid.
More gas, less wind and less big solar: The electricity numbers in Taylor’s emissions roadmap make no sense. But that’s not the only weird part of this report.
Taylor says Technology Roadmap will deliver cuts needed to hit 2030 emissions target – but the projections predict doom for large-scale wind and solar investment.
While Australia scrambles to get a speaking slot at the UK’s climate summit, its government prepares to paint a falsely rosy picture of climate progress.
Ultra-fast charging network provider Evie Networks drops time-based charging, but lifts the kWh charge at its network of charging stations.

The state-based race is on, but Western Australia is setting itself up to be a major laggard without stronger action.
Battery storage is emerging as a technology “no brainer”, but it is creating headaches for regulators trying to decide who can own and operate them.
The Australian government’s upcoming EV transport strategy will probably be more of the same: vague tech investments instead of real, consumer-focused change.
A sugar hit of COVID-affected transport, growing renewables and suspicious revisions – all the hidden bits in Australia’s new emissions data.
