Committed to renewable energy
The Northern Territory (NT) Government has set an ambitious, but achievable target of 50% renewable energy by 2030. The Territory Government’s renewable energy target is 50% of electricity consumed in 2030 from grid connected installations, including from rooftop photovoltaic (PV) generation and all Aboriginal communities supplied by Indigenous Essential Services.
The government recognises the role energy, including renewable energy, plays as a driver of economic development and jobs growth; and has established the Office of Sustainable Energy within the Department of Industry, Tourism and Trade.
One of the key roles of the new office is coordinating energy policy and the implementation of renewables to advance the government’s Roadmap to Renewable policy and the government's least cost implementation plan.
