Gleanings from the web and the world, condensed for convenience, illustrated for enlightenment, arranged for impact...

While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

    Australian States Bypass Government For New Energy

    While the government is in denial, the states are making staggering progress on renewable energy; State governments seem frustrated with the Coalition – but we are closer to 100% renewables than you think

    Tristan Edis, 1 July 2019 (UK Guardian)

    “…Recently re-elected Prime Minister Morrison confirmed his government will] not consider a new policy to reduce carbon emissions from Australia’s electricity sector…[But every government in both Labor and Liberal party-governed states] within the national electricity market has either a target to increase the share of renewable energy or substantially reduce its emissions…By 2025 Victoria will have almost achieved its interim target of 40% renewables…[on its way] to 50% by 2030…[South Australia had] renewables generating greater than half the state’s electricity consumption last year. By 2030 it will have reached 73.5%...Queensland will double the share of its demand met by renewables in just two years from 10.7% to 21.4% by 2020…[but could have difficulty reaching] 50% renewables by 2030…

    [New South Wales was at 14.4% renewables in 2018 and will need to get to 46% by 2030 in order to reach] 100% by 2050…State governments are frustrated with lack of federal action but] constitutional power for the power sector rests with state governments, not the federal government…[ They have full legal authority to implement a national energy guarantee or] some better policy to lower emissions…[Blaming] the federal government will get us no closer to a policy that supports ongoing investment in the electricity sector, reduced emissions and lower electricity prices…[and the power is within the states’] hands to deliver it.” click here for more
