Our Clean Energy Future: 100% Renewables Powering Australia’s Future

Dr Mark Hughes of Cambridge Modelling is lead author of this report, which was prepared in conjunction with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and Climate Risk, to evaluate renewable energy deployment potential in Australian transport and stationary energy.

The report finds that investment in Australia’s renewable energy resources is likely to stall in 2020 under current policies without an increase in the Renewable Energy Target (RET) out to 2030. Modelling indicates that a 2030 RET of between 137,000 GWh and 169,000 GWh (i.e. 43-53% of business-as-usual electricity demand) would prevent this post-2020 stall in renewable deployment and put Australia on the pathway to 100% renewable energy by 2050.
