Australia’s Power Generation Mix (2006-2015)

Source data: AEMO, Creative Analytics, Australian PV Institute, e4b estimates.

Over the past decade there has been a very significant change in the sources of power generation used to supply electricity customers in South Australia (SA), and the SA experience has been markedly different from the other National Electricity Market (NEM) states of QLD, NSW, VIC & TAS.

Tasmania remains the standout as the state with the lowest carbon emissions intensity of all NEM regions, largely due to it hydro-electric resource endowment. However, the state that has and continues to experience the greatest green transition is South Australia.
