The City of Sydney recently released its Draft Renewable Energy Master Plan for consultation.

It is a comprehensive plan (supported by financial and technical analysis) that if implemented will complement the City of Sydney’s Trigeneration Master Plan to achieve the City’s 2030 targets of:

  • reducing greenhouse gas emissions to 70% below 2006 levels; and
  • 30% renewable electricity supply.

Some of you might be particularly interested in the extent to which the Draft Plan looks beyond the boundaries of the City’s local government area - including in relation to the infrastructure requirements to harvest and supply “renewable gases” to the City’s planned trigeneration network.

The deadline for submissions is Tuesday 3 September 2013.
