The Clean Energy Regulator (CER) Chair David Parker announced a »major milestone« for renewable energy in Australia: The organization now approved enough capacity to guarantee that the Large-scale Renewable Energy Target of 33,000 gigawatt hours of additional renewable energy will be met in 2020.
The CER stated that 6,400 MW of large-scale renewable capacity had to be built between 2017 and 2019 to generate sufficient electricity to meet the target. In August, this milestone was met ahead of schedule with the approval of four large wind and solar power stations, with a combined capacity of 406 MW.
