Making Australia a renewable exports powerhouse policy-cover

Making Australia a renewables export powerhouse policy

07 Oct 2021


As the world moves to act on climate change and fulfil the promise of the Paris Climate Agreement, places that have the best renewable resources in the world have a significant opportunity. It’s an opportunity that we believe Australia should seize.


Renewable energy such as solar and wind is critical to decarbonising more than two thirds of global emissions in the electricity, transport, buildings and industrial sectors. In a world that acts on climate change, places with the most sunshine and strong winds and the land or area to capture these resources will have the lowest cost energy - a significant competitive advantage we ought to secure.


In this policy paper, WWF Australia sets out the priority policies required by Australian state and federal governments to position Australia as a renewable export powerhouse and put us on track to 700% renewables - that means having enough renewable energy for ourselves, and having much more left over to sell to the world.
