Our 5-point plan to repower the NT

We're calling on the NT government to commit to repowering the NT with renewable energy, creating thousands of new jobs and lowering power prices. Learn more about the five actions the next NT government can take to get the job done:

  • Central battery storage for the Darwin-Katherine grid

A central battery storage system for the Darwin-Katherine grid would help provide reliable power to Territorians and facilitate renewable energy. As the cost of battery storage continues to fall, it makes sense for our grid to store energy when there is an excess of electricity generation, and at other times draw on that energy.

  • Solar for NT Government buildings, including schools and community housing

Here in the Territory, the Government purchases roughly one-quarter of the Territory's total energy consumption – that's huge! It means the government is in a unique position to influence the uptake of renewable energy in the Territory. They should lead the way by using renewable energy for its own operations, provided by local NT solar companies. 

  • Stand up for NT solar jobs - protect the renewable energy target

A renewable energy target helps grow thousands of NT solar jobs and lower power bills in the Territory. It provides governments a firm framework within which to build complex policy, turning promises and ambition into a concrete goal. And it provides local NT solar companies with a stable set of conditions with which to operate their businesses.

  • Deliver the Roadmap to Renewables

By delivering the 11 recommendations and 50 enabling actions of the Roadmap to Renewables, the NT Government can deliver the renewable energy target, whilst maintaining the affordability of NT’s energy supply, and without compromising network reliability and security.

  • Develop renewable hydrogen for NT's future

The NT needs a strategy to kickstart a clean, innovative, safe and competitive renewable hydrogen industry that creates jobs and benefits all Territorians.

How can the NT pay for the 5-point plan?

Our plans for boosting the amount of renewable energy generation in the Territory can be implemented with low capital investment and limited financial risk. Here’s how.
