Australia’s solar industry is booming. It benefits from its good weather conditions and government support for the creation of solar parks capable of meeting more than 5.5% of the country’s energy demand.

Australia continues to make progress in building a low emissions economy. To achieve his goal, he is developing an aggressive solar electrification plan to implement 20 gigawatts of clean energy by the end of 2020.

The renewable energy growth strategy is based on the following strategies:

Solar Flagships Program, clean energy initiative.

This is a government proposal to support the growth of the production capacity of public services through renewable energy.

The cost is $ 1.5 billion. It encourages the creation of solar micro-grids instead of installing electricity poles and cables. The intention is to fuel the dependence of the network.

Integration with corporate real estate developers.

Large companies like Dexus, Goodman, Charter Hall, GPT Group, nearby, among others, promote installation of photovoltaic systems on roofs, with an average capacity greater than 100 kilowatts.

There are already 1.95 million such installations and require approximately 15,000 more per month.

It is a large-scale project where the level of energy costs must remain competitive in order to be able to extend to other sectors of the population.

Darlington Point.

To continue to promote residential solar energy, the project was created Darlington Point.

It is managed through a partnership with Edify Energy, an Australian renewable energy developer, and the company Octopus Investments. Expect to provide electricity to more than 115,000 Australian households each year.

The complex was installed with a capacity of 333 megawatts, to Griffith, New South Wales.

It is managed by the company Array Technologies because it manages very simple designs which allow to reduce the long term maintenance, which reduces costs and increases competitiveness.

Octopus Investments Australia manages a portfolio of AUD 4.5 billion of clean energy assets for a total of 26 MW. It is one of the main investors in renewable energies and has raised create new funds for Australia in 2019.
