There are sufficient renewable energy resources within 250km of the city to meet the City of Sydney 30% renewable electricity target. Also, more than enough renewable gas feedstocks can be found within 250km of the city to provide 100% of the gas needed to supply the city’s trigeneration network.
The objective of this study is to provide the City of Sydney with a comprehensive knowledge base on renewable gases - gases derived from thermo-chemical (synthetic gas) or biological conversion (biogas and landfill gas) of residual waste and biomass resources and upgraded into pipeline-quality substitute natural gas (SNG) - covering the key dimensions of technology, resources, economic and envr
In April 2008, the City of Sydney released Sustainable Sydney 2030 outlining a series of large visionary projects to transform Sydney into a more sustainable, more liveable, global and connected city by 2030.
Sustainable Sydney 2030 outlined the aspiration of our community and businesses for our local government area to be an environmental leader on a global scale. To guide the implementation of Sustainable Sydney 2030, the City developed a series of environmental master plans and strategies between 2008 and 2015. This strategy and action plan combines the insights and data from these documents.
The growing adoption of distributed energy resources (DERs) across Australia may represent the start of a transition of Australia's power system from a centraliased generation model towards an interconnected set of embedded microgrid systems.
Recent regulatory reform efforts in the Australian National Electricity Market (NEM) have included a number of rule changes aiming to contain electricity price rises driven by network investment by distributed network service providers (DNSPs). One focus area has been the economic inefficiencies of current network tariff arrangements, particularly for residential and small business consumers.
