Tasmania’s world leading 200% renewable energy target has today passed both Houses of Parliament.
This sets the course for massive opportunities in Tasmania’s renewable energy sector. Under the legislation, by December 2030, 15,750 GWh of electricity generated in a calendar year by NEM connected equipment is to be generated by utilising renewable energy sources or by converting renewable energy sources into electricity. By 2040, 21,000 GWh a year is to be generated by utilising renewable energy sources.
This legislation build on the current renewable energy target of 100% by 2022, which the state is well on track to reach.
