- The prediction for reaching 500 MW of installed solar has moved forward from 2030 last year to respondents now thinking this will occur by 2024
- The adoption of grid and home batteries was put forward as the primary technology to help decarbonise and improve energy security. However, the affordability of batteries is delaying mass deployment
