Australia was one of the first countries in the world to set a national Renewable Energy Target (RET), designed to increase the amount of electricity generated from renewable sources and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Since the introduction of the RET, and particularly in the last few years, Australia's renewable energy sector has been very active, with wind and solar facilities being developed and financed across the country.
Now developers are looking at complementary opportunities in large-scale battery storage and pumped hydro in order to provide the firming capability Australia's energy system requires, particularly given the anticipated retirement of very significant levels of coal fired generation as those facilities approach the end of their design lives.
International interest in renewable energy continues to climb, and the Australian market is full of opportunities.
How we can help
