Sundown, sunrise: how Australia can finally get solar power right

Tony Wood and David Blowers, for the Gratton Institute, write (24.5.15):

‘An energy revolution is at hand in Australia, as the arrival of home batteries combines with the falling cost of solar panels to transform the centralised grid. But for its benefits to be spread fairly and efficiently, governments must avoid the mistakes of the past by rejecting expensive subsidies and by setting charges that reflect the true cost of providing electricity.’
