An independent economic analysis has confirmed our research, demonstrating a $13 billion manufacturing windfall for Gladstone and the Hunter Valley through Renewable Energy Industrial Precincts.
We have a plan to make Australia a strong manufacturing nation once again, through the establishment of Renewable Energy Industrial Precincts in our regions. Beyond Zero Emissions and WWF-Australia recently commissioned economic analysis firm ACIL Allen to model the economic and job benefits of establishing Precincts in Gladstone and the Hunter Valley, two of the 14 priority regions identified in our Million Jobs Plan. The analysis found Renewable Energy Industrial Precincts will have the potential to not only protect Australia’s regional economies, but increase their status as export powerhouses, create tens of thousands of good quality regional jobs, and attract billions in new capital investment to regional communities.
Join Beyond Zero Emissions CEO Heidi Lee and Project Manager Heidi Edmonds to discuss how Precincts are a pragmatic first step to diversify Australia’s export profile and support a competitive industry for the future. Special guests Guy Jakeman from ACIL Allen and Alice Thompson from Committee for the Hunter will share further insights on the findings of the economic report.
