NT Government’s Renewable Energy Panel holds first meeting
The Northern Territory Government has announced the establishment of an expert panel to provide advice and inform the development of a Roadmap to Renewables Report.
Major economies around the world are increasing the use of renewable energy sources and the NT Government has committed to adopting a target of 50 per cent renewable energy by 2030.
The Roadmap to Renewables Report will summarise various options to pursue the 2030 target and will be presented to Government in mid-2017.
The Roadmap to Renewables project will be delivered in four stages;
Stage one: Establishment of the Panel, supported by the Working Group.
Stage two: The development of the Roadmap to Renewables Report, containing a series of options and policy recommendations.
Stage three: The development of the Renewable Energy Strategy.
Stage four: The implementation of the Strategy.
Comprehensive community consultation will commence in January 2017.
