STACEY TO HELP PLAN NSW ENERGY USE

TOMAGO’S CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER, STACEY SLEEMAN, HAS BEEN APPOINTED TO ONE OF THE STATE’S MOST IMPORTANT BOARDS AND WILL HELP PLAN OUR MOVE INTO CLEANER, CHEAPER ENERGY.

Late last year the NSW government declared that coal-fired power stations will  steadily be replaced by gas-fired power stations supported by renewable energy generation such as pumped hydro and batteries.

To develop that electricity the government announced its new Electricity Infrastructure Roadmap, a 10-year plan for the state’s renewable energy sector and a once-in-a-generation opportunity to help the state become a global energy superpower.

The Roadmap, effectively a plan to transition our electricity sector into one that is cheaper, cleaner and more reliable, will see five Renewable Energy Zones declared in the Central West-Orana, the Illawarra, New England, the South West and the Hunter-Central Coast regions.

It is expected to attract up to $32 billion in private investment for regional energy infrastructure by 2030, support an estimated 9,000 jobs and save around $130 a year on the average NSW household electricity bill, at the same time slashing the state’s electricity emissions by 90 million tonnes and reaching nett zero emissions by 2050.

The plan will be managed by the NSW Renewable Energy Sector Board which will examine every facet of the renewable sector and look at ways of giving state businesses a competitive edge in an emerging industry.

The Board comprises 12 directors from a cross-section of the state’s energy stakeholders including unions, energy consumer advocates, large energy users and representatives of energy market participants. Stacey Sleeman, Tomago’s CFO, has been appointed as one of those directors.

Stacey will take her place as Director, alongside co-chairs Daniel Walton, national secretary of the Australian Workers’ Union and the Public Interest Advocacy Centre’s Craig Memery.

The other members are Mark Cain (Australian Steel Institute), John Coyle (Varley Group), Anna Freeman (Clean Energy Council), Lynne Gallagher (Energy Consumers Australia), Grahame Kelly (CFMEU), James Hay  (Energy Corporation of NSW), Paul Italiano (TransGrid), Justin Page  (Electrical Trades Union), Matthew Robertson (BlueScope Steel Australia), Rod Stowe (former NSW Fair Trading Commissioner) and Cory Wright (Australian Manufacturing Workers’ Union).

 Stacey said that, with news of her appointment to the new Board, she is keen to get on with work.

“I’m looking forward to being part of the state government’s initiative to drive investment to deliver cleaner, cheaper and more reliable energy,” she said, adding: “Given Tomago is the nation’s largest energy user the roadmap is something we are keen to be involved with.” STACEY TO HELP PLAN NSW ENERGY USE
