Learning from the mistakes of Solar Flagships

The recent failure of Solar Flagship projects to meet financing deadlines is simply due to a poor policy process and we’re in danger of repeating the same mistakes with the Clean Energy Finance Corporation.

It gave me little satisfaction to hear a prediction I made in April 2011 – that the selected Solar Flagship projects would fail to materialise – had proven correct (see page 35 of the Grattan Institute report, Learning the Hard Way – Detailed Analysis). Now all the wrong conclusions are being made about the reasons behind the current predicament, which tragically leaves us on the same path with the Clean Energy Finance Corporation.
