Key industry leaders will be coming together in Melbourne on September 20th til 21st for the IQPC hosted 6th Annual Wind Farms 2020 Summit.
Australia’s wind industry has been driven by the Renewable Energy Target, designed to ensure 23.5% of Australia’s energy is generated from clean, renewable sources by 2020. Additionally, individual targets have been set in place with Canberra powering towards 100% renewable energy by 2020, South Australia hitting its state target of 50% eight years early and the Victorian Government committing to 25% by 2020. While this is a country-wide scheme, it is evident that there are promising signs for the future of growth of the industry with initiatives taking place in each state.
Despite 2016 seeing a positive clean-energy investment, including just over $1.8 billion in wind financings, many developers and operators to date are still challenged with finding the best financing and delivery models to fast track construction and ensure project bankability.
