Australia fast-tracks dumping of dirty power

The Energy Security Board predicts 75% renewables within the country's energy mix by 2025.

Australia will experience more days powered by 100% of renewable energy, as the country switches faster than expected to renewable energy sources.

The Energy Security board has started a consultation process on its proposed reforms in Australia’s energy market that will fast track transition from coal and other dirty fuel to solar and wind energy.

Chair of the Energy Security Board, Kerry Schott said that currently the country’s adoption of wind and solar were going beyond the most positive scenarios modelled by the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) in its 2020 Integrated System Plan (ISP).

“Australia is heading towards a very high percentage of renewables within its mix, and that is great. The 2019 actuals have got us up around 35 per cent or so sometimes. And the 2025 numbers are at times getting us to 75 per cent,” Schott said.

Schott also said that if AEMO’s model came to fruition, Australia would experience increased periods of 100% renewable supply, making it a regular occurrence as early as 2025.
