  • Renewable Energy In Australia

    From the Film Australia Collection. Made by Film Australia 1982. Directed by Philip Robertson. Renewable Energy in Australia investigates how alternative forms of energy are harnessed using windmills, turbines, sun by solar energy systems and photovoltaic cells. These and other methods of utilising natural resources are demonstrated in this program. A broad spectrum from experimental work to commercial installations is covered in this general overview of renewable energy research in Australia. It looks at wind, water, solar and plant resources and for their potential use in tandem with traditional energy resources.

  • Can Australia run on 100% renewable power?

    The latest research from 2016 finds that a low-carbon electricity supply, based on current, economically operating technologies and proven resources is possible for Australia. We used spatial data for the whole of the Australian continent, at time increments of 1 hour to simulate suitable generator locations and new transmission networks. Nation-wide low-carbon electricity supply is possible at about 160 GW installed capacity, at cost of around 20 ¢/kWh, involving wind, concentrating solar, and PV utilities. The storage of renewable energy using hydro and biofuel plants is critical to plug gaps caused by occasional renewable low-resource period.

The energy storage systems from Tesla will be paired with Neoen’s Hornsdale Wind Farm and installed before summer. Confirming the commitment from Tesla CEO Elon Musk to deliver the battery within 100 days or it is free, it has been agreed between Tesla and the South Australian Government that the starting date for the 100 days will be once the grid interconnection agreement has been signed.

  • Australia's Electric vehicle & Renewable Energy Crisis | The Charge

    There are 300,000 electric vehicles in California, but the national number for Australia is 3,000. It is obvious that something isn't right, in Norway 42% of all car sales are electric vehicles, in the UK the figure is 2.1%, and in Australia it is 0.01% of all car sales. Is it just a lack of incentives? In this episode Ben Alexander speaks with Councillor Jonathan Sri about Australia's incentives for people to buy electric vehicles, and renewable energy. Jonathan Sri also talks about how Brisbane is a car-centric city with potential to be a far more pleasant city to live in. He also talks about how to improve the city by increasing green spaces, parks, bicycle lanes and reducing the number of vehicles on the roads. music by Stefan Suchacki Support on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/th...

    It’s not in the papers but a silent revolution is moving across the world. Renewable energy is becoming cheaper than from fossil fuels. It means that progressively the choice for wind and solar energy is no longer an ethical one but an economic one. And this will speed up the transfer to renewable energy. In countries like Brazil, Australia, Chile and parts of the United States people consider renewable energy because of financial reasons. The price of solar and wind energy will continue to drop and in more countries renewable energy will occur. A surprising newcomer on the market is Morocco, where the government expects that in 2020 more than 40 percent of the energy could come from solar energy.

The deal will also bring other investments by both Neoen and Tesla into South Australia’s economy, with details to be announced in the future. The selection of Neoen will also strengthen South Australia’s links with France’s high-tech sector and reinforce the State’s world-leading role in tackling global warming.
