Australia is set to surpass its targets for renewable energy, with the country moving toward getting 100% of its energy from renewable sources by 2030.
As the effects of climate change become more and more evident, the push to renewable energy and sustainable living is a growing global movement – and Australia may be leading the pack, but they are far from the only country that is taking steps to try and improve their environmental impact.
At the end of 2015, countries around the world got together to sign the Paris Agreement – a global plan to take steps to mitigate global warming. The efforts of each of the countries varies, but this historic moment was one where leaders all over the world agreed that something must be done to create a greener, more sustainable future for our planet. In the years since then, Australia has been working hard to focus on renewable energy, and now it looks like they are going to smash their targets in just over a decade.
