Australian price cannibalisation of renewable assets climb

Australian price cannibalisation of renewable assets climb

Australian price cannibalisation of renewable assets climb: Research from Cornwall Insight Australia shows that the growth of variable renewable energy (VRE) generation in Australia significantly impacts their captured price. In fact, in FY18, 98% of the grid-scale solar generation volumes captured prices above $50/MWh. However, this has reduced to 12% in FY21. On top of…
