Beyond Zero Emissions welcomes switch to renewables by Tomago Aluminium
Commitment to transition is a strong sign for the future of manufacturing in the Hunter
Beyond Zero Emissions welcomes this week’s announcement by Tomago Aluminium to switch to renewables.
“This will keep our local industry competitive in the global market and reinforces our vision to establish the Hunter as the first Renewable Energy Industrial Precinct in Australia," Beyond Zero Emissions’ Hunter Engagement Lead Sam Mella said.
“Tomago’s commitment shows the potential for the Hunter to become the electric motor of the Australian economy and the importance of meeting customer demand for a zero-carbon future."
Beyond Zero Emissions is an internationally recognised think tank that shows through independent research and innovative solutions how Australia can prosper in a zero-emissions economy.
Economic analysis by Beyond Zero Emissions demonstrates that establishing a Renewable Energy Industrial Precinct in the Hunter paves the way for industry to create jobs and a strong diversified economy by 2032. This will make it easier and faster for Tomago to move to 100% renewable energy.
Beyond Zero Emissions advocates for building on strengths in mining, energy and manufacturing, meaning the Hunter can remain a significant global energy hub in the post-carbon era, powered by 100% renewable energy.
