Repowering Northern Territory

The 10 Gigawatt Vision: How renewable energy can power jobs and investment in the Northern Territory.

The Northern Territory has an exceptional opportunity to prosper in this new era by converting abundant sunshine into renewable energy. By 2030, the NT Government could help drive investment in 10 gigawatts of renewables.

By pursuing the 10 Gigawatt Vision, the Northern Territory can put renewable energy at the centre of a sustainable growth strategy that creates over 8,000 new jobs and over $2 billion in revenue by 2030.

The 10 Gigawatt Vision is a sustainable alternative to economic strategies based on fossil fuels. The shale gas industry is financially unstable and totally unsuited to the needs of the coming zero-carbon economy. Achieving the 10 Gigawatt Vision has the potential to create many more jobs than the shale gas industry and prevent over 20 billion tonnes of carbon emissions from entering the atmosphere and accelerating global warming.

BEYOND ZERO EMISSIONS

Beyond Zero Emissions (BZE) is an internationally recognised climate change think tank, providing independent and ambitious climate change solutions for Australia.

Our flagship research shows how all sectors of the Australian economy can decarbonise, repower and benefit from the transition to zero emissions. These Zero Carbon Australia plans cover renewable energy and electricity; energy efficient buildings; sustainable transport; agriculture, farming and land use; and industry.

Through volunteer-powered research we show that a thriving, zero emissions society is achievable and affordable now, and that Australia can become a renewable energy superpower.
