The fast shrinking Solar Flagships program

ARENA has released its near-term investment plan and it doesn't include funding for EnergyAustralia's Solar Flagships contender nor the Solar Dawn project, which is now dead. There is hope for some large-scale solar however, while regional and remote developments are the main focus.

The $1.5 billion Solar Flagships program is going to end up the ‘sub-$1 billion Solar Flagships program’ after the Australian Renewable Energy Agency today backed away from supporting two of the shortlisted candidates – Solar Dawn and EnergyAustralia (formerly TRUenergy). In fact, the amount of government funding from the program, while heavily obscured by being shoved into ARENA, likely won’t reach $500 million.
