NFF response AEMC renewable energy zones discussion paper

The National Farmers Federation (NFF) welcomes the opportunity to prepare a submission to the Australian Energy Market Commission’s discussion paper on renewable energy zones (REZs).

Australia’s decentralising electricity system and continued uptake of large-scaled solar and wind technologies can provide opportunities for substantial rural and regional investment through REZs.

Consistent with the NFF’s 2030 aspiration for agriculture to become a $100 billion industry by 2030, the development of REZs could assist the sector’s transition towards renewable energy.
