at Australia’s electricity, heating and fuel needs can all be fulfilled by adopting renewable energy.
The 100 percent Renewable Energy for Australia Report found that Australia could phase out all coal burning by 2030 and convert all its transport to renewable energy by 2035.
The modelling was commissioned by GetUP! and Solar Citizens as part of the Homegrown Power Plan, which outlines how the country can switch to renewable energy, get its electricity system back on track and remove roadblocks holding back renewables.
The scenario projects that 97 percent of total electricity demand (including electric transport) will be supplied by renewables by 2035. It predicts that productivity in energy will double by 2030. By this time all coal power plants will be shut down and firm capacity will remain at the current level of approximately 75 percent throughout the entire scenario period.
