Critique of Draft NSW Energy Policy Framework

Critique of Draft NSW Energy Policy Framework

The NSW Government is proposing a new policy framework for the assessment of large-scale solar energy, wind energy, and transmission infrastructure developments in NSW. The new policy framework provides several guidelines and documents pertaining to the assessment and management of wind energy, solar energy, and transmission infrastructure developments, as well as benefit-sharing and private agreements related to such projects.

Key guidelines and documents currently under public exhibition include:

  • Draft Wind Energy Guideline, including the Technical Supplement for Noise Assessment;
  • Draft Solar Energy Guideline;
  • Draft Transmission Guideline;
  • Draft Benefit-Sharing Guideline; and
  • Draft Private Agreement Guideline.

In response to the proposed framework, Marshall Day Acoustics has prepared a technical critique of the documents described above, where relevant to the assessment of noise.

Please find our critique document attached for your information. For ease of reference, the headings are titled based on the relevant guideline document and subsequent document heading, ordered as per the subject document.
