Tasmania taps into green energy

Australian island explores vast potential in renewable energy sources.

    Tasmania's abundance of wind and water has the potential to make the Australian island one of the world's leading renewable energy providers.

    Local leaders have pledged that in a few years all of Tasmania's energy needs will come from renewable sources.
