Clarke Energy is featuring as a case study on a United Kingdom Trade and Investment (UKTI) webinar on the renewables business in Australia. Clarke Energy has installed over 419MW of low carbon and renewable power across Australia, including biogas, landfill gas, natural gas cogen and trigen and coal seam methane gas engine power plants.
In 2010-11, more than A$5.2 billion (£3.5 bn) was invested in renewable energy in Australia. Australia’s legally binding national Renewable Energy Target is mandated to deliver 20% of the country’s electricity from renewable sources by 2020, necessitating considerable growth in the industry.
A record US$243 billion was invested globally in clean energy in 2010. By 2030, it is expected that the number of new jobs created in the renewable energy industry will have grown to almost 32,000 with the largest increase being attributed to growth in the solar and wind sectors.
This event has now passed. To view a copy of Alex Marshall’s presentation which includes discussion of renewable energy in Australia, cogeneration and the benefits of embedded generation visit the following site: UKTI Australia Renewables Presentation.
