The Warburton review may cause a brief boom in rooftop solar, but it will kill the prospect of large scale solar farms, and set the industry back a decade in Australia – the country that should be leading the world in solar energy.
Wind farms in Australia may have to close under proposals put forward by RET Review panel, which is accused of ignoring financing issues.
Doctors, solar and wind tower manufacturers, developers and voluntary markets associations warns of devastating impacts of RET review.

Report highlights what it describes as the Victorian Coalition Government’s “systematic campaign” against renewable energy and climate policies.
The Pacific island country of Samoa has announced its first wind farm, developed by an Abu Dhabi renewable energy company, Masdar.
Environmental protection is being given a lower priority than it has by any federal government since the first environmental legislation was introduced some 40 years ago.
