“We are on the precipice of an energy revolution. The Australian Energy Market Operator has estimated that up to 50 GW of renewable energy capacity will need to be installed by 2040 to replace Australia’s retiring coal-fired power stations. The total land required to support this solar generation would be approximately 120,000 hectares, which is equivalent of less than 0.016 per cent of Australia’s total land area.”
