RENEWABLE SUPERPOWER SCORECARD #3
See how Australia’s states, territory and federal government are performing in the race to become a renewable energy superpower.
Australia has long been a global resource powerhouse. Now we have the potential to become a renewable energy-powered export superpower. WWF-Australia is calling on our leaders to make Australia the world’s leading exporter of renewable energy by 2030 and to put us on the pathway to 700% renewables by 2050.
Our latest Renewable Superpower Scorecard presents a snapshot of how Australia’s states, territories and the federal government are performing in the race to become a renewable superpower. This third edition provides an update on progress over the past twelve months, from November 2021 to November 2022.
This is the only publicly available evaluation of the progress of Australia’s states and territories, which ranks them not just in switching Australia’s domestic energy systems to renewables, but also on how quickly our governments are working to establish new renewable export industries for the nation.
- Since the last Scorecard, the race to become a Renewable Superpower has become even more competitive with a new leader setting the pace of the transition – congratulations New South Wales!
- The Federal and Queensland Governments have announced the largest suite of policies since our last Renewable Scorecard, gaining more points than any other jurisdiction.
- The National Energy Market is tracking well to become 100% renewable. However, policy leadership is still required to achieve the exponential growth to reach 700% by 2050.
