Large-Scale Solar Power Program Prepares for Kick-Off in Australia

Researched by Industrial Info Resources Australia (Perth, Australia) — Earlier this year, the Australian government released the Clean Energy Future Plan, which is designed to shift the nation’s electricity generation fuel mix toward less emission-intensive technologies.

Part of this plan is the Solar Flagships program, which provides the foundation for large-scale, grid-connected solar energy through a competitive bid for funding. Infigen Energy (ASX:IFN) (Sydney, Australia) has a development portfolio of approximately 260 MW in photovoltaic (PV) solar farms, with projects ranging in size from 50 to 100 MW.
