Solar Champions: Go Aussie!

Surprising factoids seem popular, so here’s anothery in our new series, as Andrew Blake, Professor of Engineering, Australian National University, explains:

“You might not think it, given the decade of political climate wars, but Australia is the world leader in terms of solar electricity produced per person.

In Australia, solar and wind are booming while coal is rapidly falling. We’re already on track to reach 80-90% renewables by 2030. Remarkably, our per capita solar generation is twice as large as the second placed countries (Germany, Japan and the Netherlands) and far ahead of China and the USA.

Australia is quietly demonstrating how to accommodate huge new flows of cheap, clean electricity. The world will soon follow suit”.

No further commentary is added for factoids, so there you go.
