GREEN DEALS: PV raises the roof

Rooftop solar the star as renewables near 10 per cent of Oz power mix; Tasmania's would-be largest wind farm gets nod; Vic gets first car-share EV; and MBD Energy wins innovation prize.

Renewable energy provided almost 10 per cent of Australia’s electricity in the last 12 months, boosted by increased wind capacity and an increase in hydro-electricity production after rainfall filled depleted catchments. The latest annual survey from the Clean Energy Council, released overnight, says hydro accounted for around two thirds of the renewable energy generation in the 12 months to the end of September, with wind supplying 22 per cent. The total contribution of renewable energy was 29,302 gigawatt hours, or 9.6 per cent of total generation.
