Tony Wood from the Grattan Institute expects Australia’s Renewable Energy Target of 33GWh by 2020 to be met, despite the release of data showing that solar and wind power accounted for just 15 gigawatt hours of total electricity generation in 2018-19. Wood notes that uncertainty surrounding the RET has caused investment in renewables to be delayed, but he says separate data shows that such investment in renewables is slated to increase during 2019-20.
