Three years ago, coal generators warned the lights would go out if they didn’t receive enough carbon compensation. The absurdity of those claims is now revealed by new AEMO data, which highlights the excess capacity of coal generators. Undaunted, those generators now aim to stop renewables to protect their revenues.
Wind energy provided 43% of South Australia’s electricity needs in July. With rooftop solar PV, that means nearly half state’s electricity came from variable renewables.
Hopes the world will do something meaningful to cut carbon emissions hang on the Paris climate talks, but agreement there may not be enough.
