We’ve scoured both ends of the internet for all the latest #renewables news over the past week, so you don’t have to. Here’s the gist:
- The AFR has a story on retaining coal and gas to ‘keep supply reliable and spur new investment in firming’. Um, ok, I guess?!
- Renewable energy will mean reduced consumer prices according to this piece in the New Daily. Quotable quote: ”Renewable energy is now coming into the market at very low prices, around 35c per kilowatt hour. That is below the marginal cost of running some existing coal stations,’ said Andreas Lundberg, energy analyst with Montgomery Investment management.”
- Guess what is the second largest producer of energy in the US? Renewables, yup. Renewables overtake coal and nuclear to become 2nd biggest grid source in US via Renew Economy
- The QLD Government gets in on the renewables training thing (via Energy Magazine) and read on about Uni of Wollongong picking up a cool $5 million as part of the Federal Government’s Industrial Transformation Research Program.
- Mark it in your diaries now, the Clean Energy Council is running an online event, Infinite Australia featuring ‘Andrew ‘Twiggy’ Forrest, Dr Rebecca Huntley, Katherine McConnell and Michele O’Neil and the introduction of the clean energy industry’s biggest public campaign Renewable Energy is Here Now. 10-11.30am, Wednesday August 18 – register here. That’s quite a lineup
See you again next week for another wrap of the sector.
