Why are we talking about renewable energy now?

Due to environmental, health and safety concerns, there are plans to shut down the operations of Australia’s ageing coal-fired power stations. To cope with the potential shortfalls in energy capacity associated with these closures, and to ensure energy security for future generations, new forms of modern, cleaner energy sources are urgently needed. For this reason, both State and Federal governments have announced initiatives to encourage investment into the development of renewable energy projects.
