- Household batteries and rooftop solar power will be able to secure the country’s energy requirements by 2030.
- Australia would see major power reliability issues and will need massive investments in storage capacity to counter this.
Dr. Alan Finkel, Australia’s chief scientist has contradicted the government’s claims that Labor’s 50% renewables target by the year 2030 is a dud, as reported by news.com.au.

The study includes:
