WWF Renewable Superpower Scorecard

WWF Releases Renewable Superpower Scorecard

The WWF have recently released their “Renewable Superpower Scorecard”, the first report of its kind. Outlining the strengths and weaknesses of the Australian renewable energy sector. As well as review the performance of each state’s progress towards their renewable energy targets.

The World Wide Fund for Nature is the world’s largest and most experienced international independent conservation organisation. Their main mission is to stop the breakdown of the natural environment and push for a future in which humans live in harmony with nature. They’re some of the top industry experts when it comes to environmental topics.

WWF Australia is calling on leaders and policy makers to set Australia as the world’s leading exporter of renewable energy by 2030. As well as putting us on the pathway to 700% renewables by 2050.

How do the WWF judge?

The scorecard is made up of 10 different categories that cover the three essential stages of becoming a renewable superpower. They’re used to judge the states, territories and federal governments performance.

South Australia WWF scorecard

Comparing South Australia to the rest of the Nation, South Australia is going pretty well! Coming in second place with a really good overall scorecard.

South Australia is a long time leader in renewable energy. Also is one of the states beginning to build the foundations for a renewable export industry. The above results also puts South Australia at the top of the battery storage nationally.

Queensland however, has lots of room for improvement. Not all bad though! one of their recent big wins is their appointment of the country’s first ever Minister for Energy, Renewables and Hydrogen.

Nationally we’ve got a long way to go but we are on the right track. The key findings of this report are insightful into Australia’s position globally.

  1. The race to become a renewable superpower is very tight, creating urgency to move with more pace.
  2. The Australian government has invested $7 billion into clean energy. This may seem like a lot but compared to other countries it isn’t.
  3. South Australia and Tasmania were the only two governments that reached 100% energy demand status.
  4. Governments of all political views are beginning to embrace renewables. Most projects are still in their early stages but we’re on the right track.

“Our analysis shows that to become a real superpower, we should look to use renewable energy to produce seven times the amount of electricity we currently consume. That would allow us to meet our electricity demands, transition our transport, industries and buildings to renewables from gas, coal and oil, and export excess power and zero-carbon products to the world. Australia can become the world’s leading exporter of renewables by 2030 if we act now.”

Nicky Ison, WWF-Australia’s energy transition manager
