Connecting Clean Energy

News Item
Christine Milne 13 Jul 2013

Australia can harness our sun, wind and wave power to replace polluting coal and avoid dangerous global warming.

We need a nation-building plan to connect our cities to clean energy hotspots like Port Augusta, where community support and world-beating solar resources meet.

The Greens' Connecting Clean Energy plan does just that.

Our plan would:

  • map Australia's clean energy resources, 
  • involve local communities in planning their energy future, 
  • set up Renewable Energy Development Zones with quicker approval processes for clean energy projects where the best resources and community support align, and
  • help link clean energy hotspots to the national energy grid.
That means places like Port Augusta could convert their world-beating solar resource and community enthusiasm into concrete support for clean energy jobs and investment.
