On 5 May, the Clean Energy Council, the peak body for the clean energy industry in Australia, unveiled a plan to lead Australia’s economic recovery from COVID-19 with accelerated investment in renewable energy and energy storage.
Called A Clean Recovery, the plan outlines the extraordinary potential of renewable energy and energy storage to jumpstart Australia’s economy. A Clean Recovery would bring forward Australia’s enormous pipeline of wind and solar projects to create more than 50,000 new jobs, triple the amount of large-scale energy installed in Australia and inject $50 billion worth of investment into the economy.
This would be achieved through a number of new initiatives, including:
- the development of a national home battery program
- supporting small businesses and new homes to go solar
- making a commitment for government and community buildings to switch to solar and batteries
- building a smart distribution network to accelerate and leverage distributed energy resources
- establishing Australia’s renewable hydrogen capacity.
Australia’s clean energy industry has been a remarkable success story over the past decade and is now ready to lead the economic recovery from COVID-19.
