Renewable Energy in the New England Region
Informa Australia is delighted to be holding the forthcoming Renewable Energy in the New England Region Forum, which will be held on the 28th April 2021 at the Rydges Powerhouse Armidale and also via our fully interactive virtual event platform.
The renewable energy industry is moving forward at a rapid pace providing opportunities for companies and communities. This event is perfectly timed to bring key stakeholders together to discuss the latest developments and initiatives in the recently announced New England Region renewable energy zone.
In order to ensure reliable and affordable energy supply for energy consumers across the state, the NSW Government are planning to invest in the creation of Renewable Energy Zones to help unlock a significant pipeline of large-scale renewable energy and storage projects while supporting private sector investment in NSW’s regions.
The NSW government is hoping to attract more than $12 billion in new wind, solar and storage investment, amounting to 8,000MW of new generation capacity. The NSW government has already committed $79 million in funding to help manage the planning and development of the New England zone. This renewable energy investment will help replace ageing coal-fired power stations, transforming the region and bringing investment into the local community.
By coordinating development in a strategic way, renewables energy zones also help us get the land use planning right, and renewables built in places that work for the community, developers and cost efficiency.
