64. Renewable energy:

Support the development of renewable energy so that it comprises 33% of the state's electricity production by 2020

(Milestone of 20% by 2014)

Key Measure


Explanatory Comments

The proportion of electricity produced from renewable energy sources in South Australia has grown considerably from 4.9% in 2004-05 (baseline year) to 42.2% in 2014-15. Wind energy is the major renewable energy technology that has contributed to the result.

The result for 2013-14 is well in excess of both the 20% milestone to be achieved by 2014 and the target of 33% to be achieved by 2020.
