RenewEconomy.com.au, since its launch in 2012, has quickly emerged as Australia’s best informed and most read website focusing on clean energy news and analysis, as well as climate policy.
It is read widely among the industry and policy-makers and others with a strong interest in the transition to a low carbon economy. It has a strong international readership because it also focuses on global trends.
In September, 2015, the RenewEconomy website recorded unique visitors of 245,000 and page views of more than 560,000.
There seems little doubt that the Australian economy – indeed the world’s – is starting the journey through one of the most dramatic transformations since the industrial revolution.
Like the first, this new industrial revolution will be led by changes in technology, this time driven by the need to act on climate change, energy security and resource scarcity. Much of the way the world does business – particularly in the multi-trillion dollar energy and transport sectors, but also in many other sectors – will change profoundly in the decades to come.
How this unfolds, and at what cost or benefit, is impossible to forecast. But it’s going to be fascinating to watch, to report on, and to analyse.
