Venue: Online

Date: Wed 01 Jul 2020 @5:30pm to 6:30pm

Due to unforseen circumstances we have had to change the date of the presentation. Please note the new date of Wednesday, 1st July 

In November last year the New South Wales Government released an electricity strategy - a plan for a reliable, affordable and sustainable electricity future that supports a growing economy. 

The strategy includes

  • delivering Australia's first coordinated Renewable Energy Zone
  • saving energy, especially at times of peak demand 
  • supporting the development of new electricity generators 
  • setting a target to bolster the state's energy resilience, and 
  • making it easier to do energy business in NSW.

In this webinar, AIE will hear from Cameron O'Reilly and Chloe Hicks about the challenges and opportunities addressed by the strategy as well as an update on the delivery of the key components of the plan.
