086 - NEM generation by fuel type

Some recent news - the Australian Government Department of Energy recently released the 'National Greenhouse Gas Inventory' - a big, all-encompassing update of exactly how much Australia is emitting into the Earth's atmosphere through the operation of our economy. There'a whole stack of data in the December 2016 update.

The chart below shows changes in electricity generation in the national electricity market. Though coal is going up, variable renewables and hydro are catching up with gas and coal. Compare 2012 to 2016 - that's a fair bit of change for four years, though there's still a long way to go.
