Australia's Midday Wind Power And Photovoltaic Power Generation Reached 9GW For The First Time, Accounting For 40%

The past weekend, in Australia is the first day of summer.

In Victoria, renewable energy generation also reached a milestone: 50% of renewable energy output during the weekend. Renewable energy generation accounted for about 40% of total electricity generation at the time, because lignite power plants continued to generate electricity at full capacity, and excess electricity was exported to other states.
