ABSTRACT
The article reports on developments pertaining to electricity generation in South Australia. EnergyQuest has supplied 31 percent of the state's electricity in the first quarter of 2012 with solar panel adding another 3.5 percent placing renewable energy well above coal and close to gas. A report has been released by Beyond Zero Emissions which shows how a combination of solar-thermal power plants, coupled with wind power, could replace the Playford and Northern power stations.
