Australia dominate roof of solar electrical energy generation system
According to Australian government 's Clean Energy Regulator and the International Energy Agency’s latest data report: last year, Australia solar pv panels generation installed for 785 mw. The Sydney Morning Herald reported that the vast majority of small solar panels system installed on the residential and business units.
Compared to the European Union, China, Japan and the United States this kind of renewable energy power countries, this data has been quite good for this small populations of Australia. For example, last year Japan and Germany small solar panels power installed capacity is 759MW.
The Australian market analysis firm Solar Business Services director Nigel Morris said, solar energy total installed capacity (including the large project), Japan and Germany ranking in Australia before. However, the current Australian markets tend to small systems. REC Australia agent association president Ric Brazzal told the Sydney Morning Herald reporter said: "in view of Germany and Italy 'big', so that when I heard the news that we were surprised."
Brazzal said: "Australia to solar energy most support is concentrated in the residential level. All Australian political parties supported the residential users to use solar energy." The rest of the world, policy tend to large-scale commercial projects. To 2020, Australia hope that 20% of the country's electricity from renewable energy sources. Last year, 7% of the country's electricity from renewable energy sources. 75% electricity from coal supply. 1% of the power from the roof of solar system supply, is expected within 10 years this proportion will rise to 3%.
The climate in Australia Department Chief Executive Tim Flannery said, given each year will increase renewable energy deployment, Australia energy system is changing. Therefore, he thought that the grid must be changed in order to adapt to this change. Flannery to the Australia Broadcasting Corporation said: "no one knows how to do the perfect. But I think in the future, we will live in a we are 'prosumer model' of the world. We is the power producers and consumers." The Climate Institute chief executive John Connor told to ABC, solar power in Australia should be beyond the outskirts of roof.
