Clean Energy Australia Report

The Clean Energy Australia Report 2014 is a comprehensive overview of Australia’s renewable energy and energy efficiency sectors compiled by the Clean Energy Council. It includes key figures and statistics on the energy market from the past year.
Some interesting key points:
  • Renewable energy made up 13.47% of Australia’s total energy production in 2014, enough to power 4.5 million average homes.
  • 95% of Tasmania’s power came from renewables and 40% of South Australia’s.
  • More than 15,000 businesses now have installed solar power saving approximately $64 million each year.
  • More than 1.4 million solar power systems had been installed in Australia at the end of 2014, along with more than 900,000 solar hot water systems.
  • The renewable energy industry employed just over 20,000 people in 2014.
  • In 2014 Australia dropped from 11th in the world for renewable energy investment to 39th, this is largely related to the ongoing RET review.
  • Electricity use from the grid declined for a 6th straight year.
  • In 2015 6 systems were built between 500kW and 1MW, 4 of these by Ikea and the other 2 by Toyota.

Installed megawatts in Australia is still only small by comparison to Germany who has been the world’s top PV installer for several years and still leads in terms of the overall installed capacity; now 38,653 megawatts (MW) as at the end of April 2015.

Interestingly Germany also has about 1.4 million PV systems installed, but these include small roof-top systems, to  large utility-scale solar parks, that altogether contributed 35.2 terawatt-hours, or about 6.9 percent in 2014. This brings the country’s share of renewable electricity to about 31 percent, and in line with the official governmental goal of reaching 35 percent by the end of the decade.

The new LG NeON® R at a similar physical size reached an incredible 360W (20.8% efficiency)!

This makes it ideal for solar systems seeking visually pleasing panels and for roofs where space is tight.

The NeON® R is also the right panel when future solar system expansion is considered. Or as a combo install of panels and solar energy storage via batteries as well as electric vehicle charging. The LG NeON® R is a very powerful module. The 30 multi-ribbon busbars at the rear of the module sets a new standard of innovation. It is the result of LG’s extensive solar R&D investment.

The LG NeON® 2 has seen many improvements, from

  • longer warranties,
  • higher efficiency,
  • stronger frames,
  • better wind loading.

is ideal for homes seeking a visually pleasing solar panel. And for roofs where space is tight or where you are considering future system expansions (e.g. to incorporate battery storage or electric car charging). The LG NeON® modules have double sided cells and CELLO technology absorb light from the front and the back of the cell. This technology sets a new standard for innovation and is internationally awarded.

The latest Mono X® Plus benefits from years of LG research. The fifth generation LG Mono X® Plus offers:
