Jessica Berry, principal environmental consultant presents at Environment Institute of Australia and New Zealand (EIANZ) Conference

Jessica Berry from our environmental team is presenting at the EIANZ conference this week in Adelaide on the 4th and 5th of November. Here is a short synopsis of her presentation:

Key Environmental Issues and Community Concerns for Large Scale Renewables Projects – Now and in the Future

According to the NSW Department of Planning and Environment, as at August 2018 there was around 14,000MW of projects with an investment value of around $18 billion progressing through the NSW planning system. The majority of these are wind and solar projects.

Having prepared numerous environmental impact assessments for utility scale renewable energy projects in Qld, NSW and Tasmania pitt&sherry has developed an in depth understanding of the key issues and constraints associated with these large-scale renewables projects as well as opportunities for innovation and best practice. This includes environmental, community, technical and logistical issues. This presentation focuses on the common key issues for utility scale renewable energy projects across jurisdictions.

Drawing on this knowledge and understanding, we intend to map out the potential risks and opportunities for future renewable energy projects in Australia. This process will allow us to provide targeted and relevant advice to enable clients to make informed decisions and facilitate positive outcomes for renewable energy projects.

pitt&sherry is currently undertaking feasibility and environmental assessments for the future renewable boom including microgrids and hydrogen projects. With an uptake in renewable energy development activity in Australia, pitt&sherry’s experienced team is well positioned to offer their expertise.
