  • UNSW researchers outline 100% renewable scenarios for 2030 - Solar Sunwerx
    admin Researchers at the University of New South Wales have published a report outlining one medium carbon and two low carbon fossil fuel scenarios for the Australian National Electricity Market NEM against the costs of a previously published scenario for 100 renewable electricity in 2030 Professor Mark Diesendorf of the Institute of Environmental Studies at UNSW commented The research confirms that policies pursuing very high penetrations of renewable electricity based on commercially available technologies offer a reliable affordable and low risk way to dramatically cut emissions in the electricity sector The UNSW research presents scenarios for Australia s 100 renewable energy potential adding to similar research conducted in Ireland New Zealand Portugal the Republic of Macedonia Japan the United Kingdom the United States Germany and Denmark Given projections for Carbon and Coal extraction and storage the researchers found that only under a few and seemingly unlikely combinations of costs can any of the fossil fuel scenarios compete economically with 100 renewable electricity in a carbon constrained world Despite the evidence that renewable energy is a virtuous long term commodity the newly elected Liberal Government have indicated their preference for traditional Fossil Fuel electricity generation Costings from the government suggest they are taking an axe to the Clean Energy Finance Corporation while transferring responsibility and reducing funding for the One Million Solar Roofs program to the Australian Renewable Energy Agency ARENA Full plans for the Government s Direct Action Plan for renewable energy targets will be outlined as the government takes form over the coming months These factors suggest that customers thinking of investing in solar would be wise to put their plans in to action Tags Australia energy Government Renewable Research solar UNSW Share this entry Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google Share on Linkedin Share by

  • Obama rewrites legacy with climate action policy, why is Australia opposing it? - Solar Sunwerx
    000 lives were lost in the coal mining process and while that number has dropped to less than 100 annual fatalities in the last decade it is still significant Just as upsetting is the impact on the population at large Since the 2000s it is still estimated that US coal fired power plants cause between 10 000 and 30 000 latent or air pollution related deaths and burdens the health system to the cost of 50 billion Barack Obama explicitly mentioned childhood asthma in his climate initiative announcement hoping that his carbon reduction plans would help reduce the suffering of the 150 000 asthma patients and help prevent 6 600 fatalities per year EPA s fact sheet shows that for every dollar invested in the Clean Power Act US families will see a benefit of 7 in reduced health costs In the face of these startling figures and with hostile opposition in Washington and from US industries he has drawn a line in the sand and said enough is enough And yet the response has been something like this Can t you just imagine Obama s stern look of disapproval staring back at them Australian diplomacy Since taking office Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott has managed to upset diplomatic relations with Indonesia China and South Korea Touching down on his tour of North America he told press how pleased he was to be visiting Canadia sic It s expected that President Obama will continue to pressure him into reintroducing climate change to the upcoming G20 agenda Although he clearly has a talent for communicating with his local electorate should the Prime Minister deny his request it will surely put a lasting strain on the friendship When President George W Bush announced he was walking away from the Kyoto Protocol it sent shockwaves throughout the international community made worse by the fact that no warning was given to European or Asian leaders and investors It was a diplomatic catastrophy and the unexpected blowback left a stink on the administration that took years to dissipate Mr Abbott s rhetoric has accused reducing carbon of being a job killer although the true casualty of global action against carbon emissions would be Australia s export market Canada or is that Canadia has surfaced as a solitary and unlikely ally in his battle with emission reduction schemes This shouldn t be surprising considering our common export profiles Like it or not climate change is now firmly on the international agenda with major announcements coming from the US and China These efforts are at loggerheads with our current national policy and dependence on our neighbors healthy appetite for coal All while our pollution problem worsens American author and political activist Upton Sinclair once wrote It s difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends on his not understanding it Substitute man with head of state and salary with major export market and you re getting to the root of the problem Carbon

  • Solar Citizens plead "Don't tax the sun" - Solar Sunwerx
    associated with them that are often not reflected in the electricity prices paid by households that have installed the systems and are being subsidised by other consumers The report goes on to quote the Energy Supply Association of Australia who have suggested that solar households benefit from a hidden subsidy from low income households who cannot afford solar This claim is to put it charitably disingenuous It is true that the costs of establishing and maintaining the electricity network is incorporated into the price of electricity however the claim that low income households bare the brunt of network charges is simply untrue While 35 50 of electricity charges go towards network maintenance costs installing solar to reduce energy costs only lessens the amount contributed by solar customers The remaining fixed cost is distributed across all non solar consumers resulting in higher energy prices charged at a variable rate per kWh Put simply installing solar can reduce your electricity bills which means less money for the energy retailers Less revenue for them means they charge everyone else more to cover their overheads The more electricity you consume the more you pay regardless of whether you are a low income household or a high income household This situation and the need for network reform was recently highlighted by Monash University Professor of Economics Stephen King who suggested that as electricity prices rise so to does the incentive for high income households and businesses to install rooftop solar to reduce their costs leading to higher prices for everyone else The result is what he dramatically calls a death spiral King offers a rebuttal to the notion that the situation has been caused by an inefficient tariff structure instead pointing the finger at the electricity network regulators suggesting plainly that they follow basic economic

  • Greens unveil $100 million renewable energy program - Solar Sunwerx
    theage com au On Wednesday The Greens leader Christine Milne unveiled their Australian Community Renewable Energy Program aimed at providing community funds for green energy investment Under the scheme 100 million would be provided as seed funding for solar and wind plants to reduce reliance on the fossil fuel powered electricity grid While not common in Australia community funded initiatives like the Hepburn Wind Farm in Dalesford and the Denmark Community Wind Farm in WA have proven the enterprise is meritorious Located 10kms from the town centre the Hepburn Wind Farm in Leonards Hill produces 12 200 MWh of renewable energy annually equivalent to the consumption of 2300 homes more than the number of homes in Daylesford The Denmark Wind Farm contributed 30 of the town s power needs reducing their greenhouse gas output by 6000 tonnes each year the equivalent to taking about 1500 cars permanently off the road Germany has introduced hydro power stations for some small cities and US communities have taken up installation of solar panels on neighboring buildings when apartment roof space is limited The Greens announcement backs up their renewable energy roadmap that would aim for a 90 renewable energy target by 2030 With Labor committed to meeting the Renewable Energy Target RET questions remain over the Coallition s plans should they win Government in the upcoming election While the old parties want to find ways to help the big polluters pay less stated Milne the Greens are helping locals take control by giving them the resources they need to properly plan and find funding for clean energy projects Tags Election Greens news Renewable solar Wind Share this entry Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google Share on Linkedin Share by Mail You might also like We are pleased to be supporting

  • South Australia powers towards 50% renewable energy target - Solar Sunwerx
    charge as Australia s main advocate for renewable energy The Australian Energy Market Operator AEMO has downgraded expectations for energy consumption in South Australia due to rapid uptake of wind and solar power with one in five households harnessing power from solar PV panels Outlined in the 2013 South Australian Electricity Report energy usage in the state has dropped to 13 330 gigawatt hours down 42 GWh from the previous 12 months Projections from the AEMO suggest a continued 0 1 drop for the next decade as renewable energy continues to gain momentum in the community complimented by compulsory energy efficiency measures for all new building projects Threatening this trend is the upcoming deadline on the South Australian feed in tariff FiT Most solar investors are enjoying the state feed in tariff of 16c per kilowatt hour with an additional 9 8 cents being contributed by electricity retailers Source 2013 South Australian Electricity Report While the 16c is being phased out by the end of September the 9 8c will remain the minimum return offered to consumers With similar rates offered in Victoria and the rising cost of energy from traditional fossil fuel energy sources the 9 8c is still seen as an adequate price to improve solar installation rates combined with the reducing cost of solar panel production the AEMO is predicting that the current install base will treble with eventually one in two homes enjoying the benefits of solar power The report outlines the AEMO s claim that it is technically feasible for 100 of Australia s energy needs met by renewable means if backed by federal policy Tags energy news Renewable solar South Australia Wind Share this entry Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google Share on Linkedin Share by Mail You might also like
