Powering 2023: the biggest energy projects in Australia this year

Australia is decarbonising its energy systems at a faster rate than we anticipated – although still not at a rate fast enough to avoid the destructive effects of global warming.

Nevertheless, while Australia continues to export huge amounts of fossil fuels, onshore our renewable energy projects are taking off.

Solar and wind power have been the cheapest sources of electricity for years now, even when the cost of storage is taken into account.

So what are some of the biggest projects coming out this year? And how will they reshape we power Australia?

Cosmos Magazine journalist Ellen Phiddian joins Dr Sophie Calabretto, to chat about five interesting energy projects to watch this year.
