Where do renewables stand in Australia?

Clean Energy Australia Report is out and in our graphs of the week, we see how the sector is developing and look at some of the development underway.

As debates over the Renewable Energy Target and carbon pricing raged on, renewable sources quietly had a record breaking year in 2012, responsible for 13.14 per cent of Australia’s electricity generation, up from 9.64 per cent.

The dominant source remains hydro (with 58% of renewables), but wind (26%) and solar (8%) are increasing their share, according to the Clean Energy Australia 2012 Report, prepared by the Clean Energy Council.
