Renewable sources of energy have gained traction to fulfill a larger portion of Australia’s demand for electricity. The trend had already started and now is backed by recent bushfires in South Australia. Thus, climate change becomes a more serious threat to the country. Renewable energy allocated 21% of total electricity generation in Australia, 2018.
In 2018, renewables plus fossil fuels approximately generated 230,000 GWh electricity for the country. The share of renewable energy was 48,279 GWh or 21%. Top 3 technologies that had a larger portion of the electricity generation were hydro, wind, and solar power in order.
According to the Clean Energy Council report, by any measure, 2018 was a remarkable year for the Australian clean energy industry. Investment in large-scale renewable energy projects was doubled of the record-breaking 2017, increasing from $10 billion in 2017 to $20 billion in 2018.
