The Northern Territory is working towards making Alice Springs a world leading solar centre by 2020. The report was prepared to support a public consultation phase, and analysed moderate and stretch scenarios of solar deployment and supporting activities. This briefing report for the Northern Territory Department of Natural Resources, Environment, the Arts and Sport was delivered by the Australian Photovoltaic Institute (formerly the Australian Photovoltaic Association) with ITP Renewables as the key subcontractor. Under the stretch scenario, we found that 70% could be provided by a mix of PV and concentrating solar power with thermal storage.
