Clean energy Australia report 2021 5.33 MB

The Australian renewable energy industry accounted for 32.5 per cent of Australia’s total electricity generation in 2021, which represented an increase of almost 5 percentage points compared to 2020. This growth was again led by small-scale solar, which added 3.3 GW of new capacity during the year to record its fifth-straight record-breaking year. The large-scale sector also had a bumper year in 2021, adding 2955 MW across 27 projects, which included Australia's three largest solar farms and two of the country's three largest wind farms.

At the end of 2021, 66 large-scale wind and solar projects were under construction or financially committed, representing more than 7 GW of new capacity and 19,000 jobs.
