Step 4

How we can shift Australia to 100% renewables

Chasing 100% renewables

We need to shift Australia from 31% to 100% renewable energy, before time runs out for the climate.

Our grid is a mix of green and dirty power

At times, energy is much greener than usual, with heaps of solar and wind power. 

Use more energy at greener times

Run your home primarily on solar and wind. Help more renewable generation get built.

Use less energy at dirty times 

Cut your carbon footprint and demand for coal and gas. Accelerate closure of dirty generators.

A deeper dive on going greener

1. How is Amber different to other energy providers?

Amber was founded by climate activist Dan Adams and techie mate Chris Thompson to solve the biggest problem holding Australia back from reaching 100% renewable energy: making it easier and rewarding for more Aussies to use more green energy and act on climate change. While other green energy providers focus on offsetting your fossil fuel energy use, we’re laser-focused on helping you reduce your fossil fuel use in the first place.

2. I’m on a green energy plan. Aren’t I already using more green energy?

Right now, for anyone on a traditional retail energy plan - even a green energy plan - it’s very hard to actually use more green energy. We all draw power from the same grid and traditional plans don’t provide you with the tools you need - for example, live wholesale energy prices that drop when there’s more green energy in the grid, and the % of renewable energy in real time. Amber empowers you to make a choice.

3. What if I need to use power when the grid isn’t green?

Of course we can’t only run appliances during certain hours but every little bit of shifting towards greener times helps. What’s most important is that you check the app before using particularly energy-hungry appliances like washing machines, electric ovens or air-con, and that you avoid using energy during a few exceptionally dirty hours of the year (we’ll give you a nudge via the app).
