Will Australia Participate In $64 Billion Wind And Solar Boom

Will Australia Participate In $64 Billion Wind And Solar Boom

The graphic is based on a simple assumption, 20% wind 10% PV. About the only useful bit of data from this study is that at those levels of penetration there is no grid cost (on average). I sure they then took a cost/MW for solar and PV and use that to calculate how much each country investment opportunity was. Based on that definition Germany is already FULL. WAG is they didn’t do much work to get those two numbers. And if they did are worthless anyway. Ok India for to have more would require grid upgrades. Big deal show me one real study that say India doesn’t need massive grid, or at least massive micro grid, work to get power to all its people. If it is distributed it is clear that you can go much higher than 10% PV, without grid upgrades. Since it happens during peak and where it is used.
