The state of renewable energy in Australia.
In 2001 Australia implemented a policy to encourage large scale renewable energy development. It was called the Mandatory Renewable Energy Target. The target is set at 33 GWh by the year 2020.
To meet this more than 8000 megawatts (MW) of wind power and 2500 MW of solar power projects are either under construction or have planning approval.
The continued reduction of solar feed in tariffs around the country has slowed the PV solar industry down, but the renewable sector continues to grow. Wind and solar generation increased over 20% in 2015.
