There is a global energy revolution underway and South Australia is at the forefront of it.
Our report shows we can build on our world-leading success and get to 100% renewables in just 15 years! Even more excitingly, we don't need to wait for a supportive Federal Government: to seize this opportunity we just need our State Government to act.
Will you sign our petition to the Premier calling for a Roadmap for 100% Renewables?
100% Renewable Electricity for South Australia Report
Conservation SA commissioned University of NSW energy expert Dr Mark Diesendorf to investigate the feasibility of 100% renewable electricity for South Australia by 2030. The report finds that this is entirely achievable even without supportive Federal Government policies.
Dr Mark Diesendorf launched the report at Conservation SA on 16th June 2015. You can watch a video of his presentation here (footage not by Conservation SA)
How to ensure South Australia benefits from a renewable energy transition
Conservation SA has taken this conversation directly to the sectors that care most about jobs - our unions and our industries. As part of those conversations we have developed a discussion paper that recognises some of the immediate challenges of moving away from fossil fuels. Read the discussion paper here.
We propose that a roadmap for our energy transition is developed, or a process to better understand the roadblocks and creatively design alternatives.
