100 per cent renewable energy network affordable, secure and 'off the shelf': study


Australia can build an affordable and secure electricity network with 100 per cent renewable energy, using existing technologies, according to research by the Australian National University (ANU).

The study details plans for a zero-emissions grid which would rely on wind and solar technology, supported by pumped hydro storage.

It could be set up with inexpensive, currently available, "off the shelf" products and eliminate the need for coal and gas-fired power.
