Please scroll down for lots of useful information. There are links to industry and environmental journals, relevant dates in the environmental and renewable energy calendar, current debates, a solar PV Feed-in Tariff calculator, green products websites, campaign groups and more. Some of this might be a bit outdated given time considerations and the fact that I don't get paid for doing this, but I do try and keep it as fresh and new as I can so it's still worth checking out.

More than one million PV systems installed under Australia's Renewable Energy Target



http://ret.cleanenergyregulator.gov.au/Latest-Updates/2013/April/one-million-solar-panel-systems-installed
Data released today by the Clean Energy Regulator shows more than one million (1 000 643) households in Australia are now equipped with solar photovoltaic panels. Today's postcode data also shows that more than 794 345 solar hot water and air source heat pump systems were also installed under the Renewable Energy Target.

The Renewable Energy Target is designed to deliver on the Australian Government's commitment to ensure the equivalent of at least 20 per cent of Australia's electricity comes from renewable sources by 2020.
Under the Renewable Energy Target, the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme creates a financial incentive through the creation and trade of small-scale technology certificates for homeowners who install eligible renewable energy systems, such as solar hot water heaters, air source heat pumps and solar panels, based on the amount of electricity an eligible system generates or displaces.

See the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme for more information about small-scale renewable energy system installations under the Renewable Energy Target.
