Pacific Hydro’s submission on the review of Renewable Energy Target
17 September 2012
Around 80-90% of Australians support the roll-out of renewable energy.
Australians are also clearly able to identify that renewable energy is better for our health, air, water and environment now and into the future.
Recent research from the Climate and Health Alliance and the Climate Institute reports that the benefits from each tonne of carbon reduction equates to a saving of $46 in health costs – twice the cost of Australia’s starting price for carbon.
The Renewable Energy Target is driving investment in renewables on the basis of this bi-partisan supported, successful measure which is already delivering around 10% of energy generation across the nation.
