Title: The Australian Wind Energy Association Clean Power' Clean Air'


1
The Australian Wind Energy Association Clean
Power. Clean Air.
  • Australian Wind Energy Market Update
  • Andrew Richards
  • President, Auswind
  • EWEC 06
  • Athens

2
Growth and development of the Australian wind
energy industry
  • Australian wind energy capacity cumulative
    growth 2001-2005

3
Current industry status
4
Competitive Market
  • In Australia, wind energy projects create two
    commodities energy and renewable energy
    certificates (RECs)
  • Both are subject to a national, open access,
    highly competitive market
  • Australia produces some of the cheapest wind
    energy in the world (but competing against very
    cheap coal)

5
Changing Australian marketplace 2005-06
  • Sale of Southern Hydro to Australian Gas Light
    (AGL) for A1.425 billion
  • Takeover battle between Investment Funds
    Management and Acciona for Pacific Hydro
  • Babcock and Brown Wind Partners launched
    cleantech fund
  • Hydro Tasmania and CLP Power Asia embarked on
    joint venture Roaring 40s Renewable Energy Pty
    Ltd
  • Alinta positioning to take a great role in the
    sector

6
Framework of Australian governments
7
Australian Government Initiatives
  • Primary market growth the Mandatory Renewable
    Energy Target (MRET)
  • 2 target by 2010
  • 1998 National Greenhouse Strategy
  • 1.8 billion climate change strategy
  • Renewable Energy Action Agenda
  • Target of annual renewable energy sales of 4
    billion per annum by 2010
  • 2004 White Paper on Energy and the Environment

8
Asia-Pacific Partnership on Clean Development
and Climate
  • Partnership announced in 2005 and inaugural
    meeting held in January 2006
  • Australian Government committed 25 million for
    renewable energy projects over 5 years
  • 4 of the 6 nations are already part of the top 10
    wind energy nations in the world
  • 5 of the 6 nations are expected to unlock major
    wind energy potential by 2020
  • Potential for renewable energy alliances with
    partnership nations

9
Council of Australian Governments
  • Recently launched its Plan for Collaborative
    Action on Climate Change.
  • Agreed the need to reassess the Australian
    Agenda with a view to extending agreement on
    policy principles, planning faster more ambitions
    transition to sustainable low emissions and
    lifestyles and setting and agenda for action.
  • Specifically asked for
  • the completion by end 2006 of a national
    framework for the take up of renewable and low
    emission technologies,
  • the completion by mid 2006 of an acceleration of
    existing work by Ministerial Councils on
    emissions reporting and development options for
    strengthened reporting approaches.

10
State policy leaders
  • Victoria
  • 10 renewable energy target by 2010
  • 1000 MW by 2006
  • Market-based renewable energy scheme by January
    2007
  • Wind Energy Support Package
  • Renewable Energy Support Fund
  • South Australia
  • 20 renewable energy target by 2014 (increased in
    2006 from 15
  • Australian leader of wind and solar power
    generation by 2014

11
Current development
  • Close to 6,000 MW of wind energy projects in
    feasibility stages of development
  • These projects collectively generate
  • 10 billion in capital investment
  • 19 million in landholder lease payments
  • approximately 8,000 jobs
  • enough electricity for more than three million
    households
