Northern Territory roadmap to renewables

Fifty per cent by 2030

27 Nov 2017
Description

The Northern Territory government is committed to producing 50% renewable energy by 2030 for electricity supplied to Territory households and businesses, while at the same time ensuring secure and reliable electricity at least cost to consumers and taxpayers.

An independent expert panel, chaired by Mr Alan Langworthy, was commissioned to advise and provide a report on viable options to reach the renewable energy target taking into consideration technical, financial, operational and economic issues.

The Roadmap to Renewables report was delivered to the government and was released on 27 November 2017 together with the government’s response.

The report provided 11 recommendations to guide government to achieve the target. The government supports or supports in-principle each of these recommendations.

The government is undertaking detailed technical, economic and financial analysis and modelling to support implementation that ensures a reliable, secure and least cost (for consumers and taxpayers) electricity supply for the Northern Territory as it progresses towards the 50% renewable energy target.
