How is wind energy used in Australia?

Australia is regarded to have some of the best wind resources available along the southern region of the country. There are also pockets of regions in Western Australia that have been noted for high potential within the wind industry. Wind power is essentially utilized for the generation of electricity in Australia. Alternative uses for wind energy are to pump bore water in rural regions. The availability of onshore wind resources are very good in Australia. However there are no solid plans to develop any offshore wind projects in Australia at this present time. Wind Energy is the fastest growing source of renewable energy for electricity production in Australia and accounts for approximately 4%of total energy consumption.
