Inquiry into Non-Renewable Technology Industry Closure

The Experience of Unplanned Mass Closures of Electricity Generators and Other Large Industrial Assets on Workers and Communities, Both in Australia and Overseas – Senate Committee on Environment and Communications

Last week the Senate referred the issue of unplanned mass closures of electricity generators and other large industrial assets on workers and communities, both in Australia and overseas to the Committee. The inquiry is mandated to investigate the socio-economic impact of industrial closures. The committee will look at policy mechanism to limit closure impacts on communities who are reliant on industries which are closing down due to changes in the national Electricity Market with regards to Paris Agreement obligations, the shifting energy balance between traditional and renewable energies, and energy security.

The inquiry will receive submissions until 10 November.
