    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
