Tasmania is in the enviable position of generating the majority of its electricity needs from renewable sources. This occurs predominately from Tasmania’s extensive hydro generation and storage schemes, but also with significant contributions from Tasmanian wind farms.
Tasmanian renewable energy is also exported via Basslink undersea cable to assist in meeting interstate demand, with the interconnector also used to import electricity.
