Renewable energy is now generating 70 percent of Australia’s power and that number will only keep growing. The new Australian Renewable Energy Index provides a look into how much sustainability has improved in the country down under despite perception that it’s not embracing the change.

Studies from the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) reveal that just 46 percent the country’s big businesses are making the green switch. Even worse, most of the companies involved are sparsely using renewable power. This is in stark contrast to public demand, where 80 percent of the population would like to see these companies support wind and solar generation.
