GREEN DEALS: Renewables rush

News from the RET Review is great for the clean tech sector as there's news from Silverton wind farm, Australia's largest, and plans to build a wind farm at the Gunns pulp mill site. Meanwhile, Australia's only solar plant opens and the world's biggest offshore wind project produces its first electricity.

The renewable energy sector breathed a collective sigh of relief on Friday, with news the Climate Change Authority is keen for the renewable energy target to largely remain unchanged. It is big news for the sector, with the large-scale target set to be the driver of billions of dollars in renewables investment.

To see how important, take a look at clean energy investment in Australia since the RET was expanded in 2009. It’s quite a pretty picture.
