Rooftop and Commercial Solar is Changing How Australia’s Energy Market Works

 

According to a new report from the Australian Energy Regulator (AER), Australia’s electricity markets transform from heavy usage of large fossil fuel plants to a more sustainable source of energy including smaller-scale, solar and wind generators and grid-scale solar batteries.

With an added capacity of more than 3.7GW of large-scale solar and wind to the National Electricity Market (NEM) and a new capacity installed of almost 2.5GW in rooftop PV, there was a record-breaking level of solar and wind generation in 2020 which accounts for over 19% of total electricity generation.

However, fossil fuel-powered plants continue to produce over 70% of electricity in the NEM, but this is declining.
