Rank Hypocrisy: Where Australia ranks on ‘renewables per capita’
At the UN General Assembly the Prime Minister claimed Australia has the highest renewable energy investment in the world in per capita terms. This claim is contradicted by multiple data sources including those the government cites, and is misleading. The recent boom followed a collapse caused by the government cutting the Renewable Energy Target. Investment is again slowing and without new policy and planning the industry’s future is uncertain.
