Fossil fuels accounted for 81 per cent of Australia’s electricity generation in 2018, according to a report to be released on 13 September. The Department of Environment and Energy’s Australian Energy Update shows that coal was the dominant producer of electricity, accounting for 60 per cent of generation, and that over 75 per cent of electricity generation in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria was coal-fired. Despite the continued dominance of fossil fuels when it comes to electricity generation, Energy Minister Angus Taylor says Australia leads the world in terms of clean energy investment.
