Tasmanian Renewable Energy Action Plan 2020 – Giving Young Tasmanians Their Say

The Tasmanian Government thinks that renewable energy is vitally important. It is clean, sustainable and can help manage climate change. Tasmania is leading the way in renewables for Australia, with some of the best water and wind resources in the world. We will soon be able to say the electricity we generate here is 100 per cent renewable.

Continuing to grow our renewable energy will create jobs for young people and help ensure a strong future for all Tasmanians for years to come. It is the Tasmanian Government’s goal to build a renewable energy industry that can safeguard Tasmania’s future while helping it recover from COVID-19.

To help achieve this plan, the Government released a draft Tasmanian Renewable Energy Action Plan in May 2020. This Plan explains the actions that will help Tasmania take the next steps towards generating more renewable energy for use in Tasmania and also on mainland Australia.

The Government has created this version of the draft Plan, at the suggestion of Tasmania’s Commissioner for Children and Young People, so that young people can have their say on the Tasmanian Government’s plan for increased use of renewable energy to help our environment and to create the jobs of the future.

Environmental issues and Tasmania’s future are really important matters for children and young people, which is why the Government wants to hear what you think of its plans to expand and grow Tasmania’s renewable energy sector.
