According to a study by clean energy news and analysis, Emissions from electricity in Australia fell by 4.9% in the 2020 year – driven by a 16.1% increase in the amount of electricity supplied by renewable energy sources and a remarkable 4.4% decline in electricity generation from coal.
A report suggests that Australia has the highest uptake of solar globally. Clean Energy Regulator data shows that more than 2.68 million rooftop solar power systems have been installed in Australia in total, as of 31 December 2020; that means one in four homes have solar panels on their roof.
