South Australia to boost renewable energy target by Justin Blows

According to this news item, South Australia wants to increase its renewable energy output target to 33% by 2020 and will allocate $20M towards investment in South Australia’s renewable energy sector.

This is a very ambitious target and exceeds the national target.

I note that the South Australian Premier Mike Rann intends to invest in research and development in renewable energy, and wants to be a “renewable hub for the rest of Australia”.

Our recent report on Australian Solar Innovation: Losing our Place in the Sun, however showed that less than 1% of Australian sourced solar patents issued in Australia originated from the state of South Australia.
