A secretive royalties deal struck between Queensland and Adani set to deliver millions in effective loans and concessions to the massive coal mine.
TAI report shows that as renewables flourish, total sent-out coal-fired power fell to below 66% of total generation and to less than 70% of grid-level generation, excluding rooftop solar.
Latest report shows renewables, including rooftop solar, fell just a fraction short of a 25% share of Australia’s main grid in past 12 months.
Latest National Energy Emissions Audits show large-scale renewables generation – increasingly big solar – still driving steady fall in electricity sector emissions, while a thriving rooftop PV market cancels out any increase in grid power consumption. But will the dearth of federal policy take a toll?
A record July for wind power has helped the combined output of “new renewables” – wind and solar – to reach a new peak for the month.
TAI report says latest federal government data confirms two things: 1) Australia’s emissions are definitely still going up; 2) The Morrison Coalition government is “contemptuous” of its obligations to prevent dangerous climate change.
A power struggle is brewing between Australia’s energy incumbents and advocates for market reform over what will be one of the most important components of Australia’s future grid – wholesale demand response.
Wind overtakes hydro as largest source of renewable energy as electricity sector emissions continue to fall and South Australia beats 50 per cent wind and solar share.
Canavan says Australia’s “fragile electricity system” needs more “reliable” “baseload” power. TAI report shows booming renewables displacing black coal generation for first time ever, and rooftop solar pulling weight in summer heat.
As ScoMo sets off on the campaign trail, report says surge in wind and solar has seen NEM wholesale power prices peak, and go into a decline. Fair dinkum.
