Statement on the CSIRO 2023-24 GenCost Report

The following statement is attributable to Clean Energy Council Chief Executive, Kane Thornton:

“The release of the latest GenCost report by the CSIRO today once again confirms that renewables are the most affordable, reliable form of electricity generation and the key to achieving a cleaner, more secure future.

“This report also outlines that proposals for large-scale and small modular nuclear reactors are not a serious proposition for Australia’s energy future.

“Coal is exiting our energy system at record pace and only renewables firmed by storage can replace this generation in order to avoid blackouts and power price hikes.”
