A novel coronavirus pneumonia Commission has recently launched a “clean recovery” plan to promote Australia’s recovery from the economic downturn brought by the new crown pneumonia epidemic by increasing investment in renewable energy and energy storage.
According to Kane Thornton, CEO of the Clean Energy Commission, hundreds of large-scale wind and solar power projects in Australia have been approved under the “clean recovery” plan and are ready for rapid development, with a total scale of more than 30000 megawatts. “We will also support more Australian households and businesses to install and use solar power systems, which will not only increase the autonomy of energy customers, but also effectively reduce electricity prices.”
In April this year, the government of Northern Territory of Australia announced that households or business users in northern territory will be rewarded with us $6000 per household if they install solar power generation or energy storage systems. To this end, the initial budget of the relevant government departments reached about US $800000.
