Renewables Nation - our plan to make Australia a Renewable Energy Exports Superpower
As the world shifts to a low carbon future, Australia has everything we need to take the lead and become a renewable energy export superpower. We've got endless sunshine, plenty of space, powerful winds, world-class expertise and strong trade relationships: it's a winning combination.
By acting now, we can make sure Australia will thrive in the global clean economy for generations to come.
Australia can power our whole nation with clean and affordable renewable energy, plus have plenty left over to sell to our neighbours.
As a renewable energy export powerhouse, Australia wouldn’t have to choose between a healthy environment or a booming economy. We could grow our economy, create tens of thousands of new clean energy jobs and lower our domestic carbon pollution.
And when it comes to innovation, we know what we're doing. Australians invented Wifi and EFTPOS, technology that is now used all over the world. The modern solar cell was invented by an Aussie, and today, Australia has one of the highest rates of household solar in the world, with one in four households having solar on their roofs. Aussie companies - big and small - are leading the way in clean energy solutions, like grids, batteries, and electric vehicles.
WWF-Australia is calling on our leaders to make Australia the world’s leading exporter of renewable energy by 2030.
