ARENA's unanswered questions

The Australian Renewable Energy Agency has billions at its disposal to make a valuable contribution to clean energy development in Australia. But its general funding strategy is so vague it could potentially waste that opportunity.

The Australian Renewable Energy Agency released its General Funding Strategy and Investment Plan yesterday – and it left more questions than answers. These documents are intended to inform those engaged in renewable energy and the general public as to how ARENA intends to allocate $2.2 billion, and why.

Considering the quantities of public money involved you’d expect a bit of detail. 

Well the General Funding Strategy barely filled five pages and the Investment Plan was two pages.
