New South Wales wins climate award

The state government of New South Wales has been selected by the US Environmental Protection Agency for its 1998 International Climate Protection Award. The award is being granted for the state's green power scheme. Developed by the Sustainable Energy Development Authority (SEDA) and launched in April 1997, the accredited scheme has since moved interstate to retailers in the states of Victoria and Queensland. According to SEDA executive director Cathy Zoi, the scheme has attracted more than 22,000 households in NSW and $70 million of investments in new renewable energy projects, including the southern hemisphere's largest solar installation at Singleton in the Hunter Valley and the recently commissioned 5 MW Crookwell wind farm (Windpower Monthly, October 1998). The award was judged by a panel of industry, government and international non-government organisations from Brazil, France, India, Japan, Mauritius, Mexico, the Netherlands and the US.
