    Renewable energy is abundant in Australia. The economic resource is estimated at over 5,000 exajoules – enough to power the world for ten years. This economic resource includes only solar and wind resources within close proximity to the transmission grid and able to generate power at a price competitive with other new power stations. This is 75 per cent more than the energy content of all Australia’s fossil energy resources.
