A bright shine in small solar fixes

Domestic solar PV is only one part of the complex energy solution we need, but its real value comes when it can reduce the capital investment in the power grid needed to meet peak demand.

Matthew Wright's criticisms of the Grattan Institute report ‘No easy choices: which way to Australia's energy future’, are either incorrect or miss the point of our analysis (Blind spots on our solar future, February 8). Individuals such as Wright may have good reasons to support or oppose particular technologies. However, based on a detailed assessment, our overall conclusion is that there is no obvious winner or loser among the range of low-emission options that Australia has for its electricity future. We need to keep them all in play to deliver a low-emission future at lowest cost. There is no easy choice or quick fix.
