Beyond Zero Emissions: The 10 Gigawatt Vision
Beyond Zero Emissions
The Northern Territory has an exceptional opportunity to prosper in this new era by converting abundant sunshine into renewable energy. By 2030, the NT Government could help drive investment in 10 gigawatts of renewables. By pursuing the 10 Gigawatt Vision, the Northern Territory can put renewable energy at the centre of a sustainable growth strategy that creates over 8,000 new jobs and over $2 billion in revenue by 2030. The 10 Gigawatt Vision is a sustainable alternative to economic strategies based on fossil fuels. The shale gas industry is financially unstable and totally unsuited to the needs of the coming zero-carbon economy. Achieving the 10 Gigawatt Vision has the potential to create many more jobs than the shale gas industry and prevent over 20 billion tonnes of carbon emissions from entering the atmosphere and accelerating global warming.
