The innovative ways some of our primary producers are making use of renewable energy means that growing our food and raising our animals will become both cheaper and cleaner, ensuring Australia remains a global leader in agriculture. Clean energy is helping to pave the way for more independence and prosperity for our farmers long into the future.

    Queensland the big winner under Energy Australia power cuts

    Energy Australia has joined rivals AGL and Origin Energy by cutting electricity prices in the National Electricity Market. The price cuts mostly affected customers in Queensland, who will see a 3.8 per cent reduction for households and a 7 per cent cut for businesses. Prices in NSW, the ACT and South Australia were unchanged. The announcement comes at a time when the spotlight is firmly on electricity retailers’ business practices following last week’s release of a damning report by the Australian Energy Market Commission. Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg continued to threaten retailers with further regulation over the weekend, saying that the government would be open to any recommendations made by the upcoming Australian Competition and Consumer Commission report into the retail electricity market.

  • Solar road provides a vision of the future in China

    China Solar Panels

    A kilometre-long solar road has been installed in the Chinese city of Jinan as the country looks to take a leading role in the global energy transition. The road uses 5875 square metres of solar panels that are installed under a glass-like surface that replaces more traditional asphalt. While the concept of solar roads is still in its infancy – with issues such as cost and durability preventing their widespread adoption – a number of countries around the world are investigating the technology, with the Netherlands installing a solar footpath in 2014 and Japan planning to install solar roads as part of its commitment to make the 2020 Tokyo Olympics environmentally sustainable.
