Dan van Holst Pellekaan, the energy minister in the newly elected South Australia Liberal government, has vowed to continue the stateâ€™s dramatic energy transition and show other states â€œhow it can be doneâ€.
In a keynote speech to the Australian Energy Storage conference and exhibition in Adelaide on Wednesday, van Holst Pellekaan said expectations that the election of a Liberal government would be the end of clean energy in the state were false.
â€œWe heard about the end of renewables and return to energy systems of the past,â€ van Holst Pellekaan said.
â€œThe transition is underway, and the transition will continue. It is being driven by the fundamental economics of clean energy as the lowest cost new build energy source.
â€œSouth Australia will lead and show the world how a sensible transition can be done.â€
