Draft Renewable Energy Coordination Framework

TasCOSS welcomes the clear commitment to Tasmania’s renewable energy future laid out in the framework. We support the aspiration to partner with communities to ensure mutual benefits for all stakeholders concerned with and impacted by the actions under the framework, and for all Tasmanians more broadly.

TasCOSS emphasises and reiterates concerns raised in our submission on the Tasmanian Renewable Energy Action Plan (TREAP) that the costs and benefits associated with activities under the framework be made transparent in accessible ways through a variety of platforms. We are concerned with the potential for Tasmanian households, in particular low income customers, to be burdened with the cost impacts of renewable energy developments and activities while the benefits flow primarily to mainland National Electricity Market (NEM) customers and proponents of such developments.
