Renewable Superpower Scorecard #2

27 Nov 2021

Keywords

WWF-Australia believes Australia should be a renewable energy export superpower and we’re calling on everyone to help us become one.

 

Our latest Renewable Superpower Scorecard #2 presents a snapshot of how Australia’s states, territories and federal government are performing in the race to become a renewable superpower eight months after the first scorecard was released in March. 

Our scorecards are the first time Australia’s states and territories have been ranked for their progress not just in switching Australia’s domestic energy system to renewables, but also on how quickly and comprehensively they are working to establish new renewable export industries for the nation.

Key findings

  • The race to become a Renewable Superpower is close - neck and neck - but there is much more opportunity ahead, and real urgency to move fast - if you’re not out front you’re being left behind.

  • Most jurisdictions are making solid progress on rolling out renewables, and tracking toward state targets for domestic electricity - but we need exponential growth to reach 700% renewables by 2050.

  • Only three jurisdictions - Tasmania, New South Wales and South Australia - are thinking beyond “100%” renewables. In fact, most are still stuck with targets of 50% renewables by 2030, or less.
