Description:

Develop a formal government strategy and implementation details to support large-scale solar and other renewable energy deployment.  The work was put on hold pending the progress of a large scale solar funding round led by ARENA .

The large scale solar round is expected to triple the installed capacity of large scale solar in Australia from 240 megawatts to 720 megawatts. It is expected that with $92 million of ARENA funding, the large scale solar round will unlock around $1 billion of investment in the sector.
