Webinar | National Supergrid: Connecting Australians to a zero-emissions future

February 21, 2023

‘National Supergrid’ outlines a five-year grid investment program to build the foundation from which Australia can become a renewable energy powerhouse.

Connecting Australians to a zero-emissions future.

Australia can become a renewable energy superpower that manufactures and exports high demand zero-emissions products to all corners of the world. But to become a green exports powerhouse – an economic opportunity worth $333 billion per year by 2050 – first we need to build the energy grid infrastructure to deliver cheap renewable energy from where it is generated to where it is used. We need a National Supergrid. You’re invited to Beyond Zero Emissions’ first briefing to launch the “National Supergrid” report. Join us to hear how immediate investment by the federal government in nation-building energy grid infrastructure can set up our economy to thrive for generations to come.
