Western Power calls for renewables proposals

The Western Australian renewable energy industry has responded positively to Western Power's call for new projects, the company says. It received 13 submissions (including some for wind projects) to its offer to buy 90,000 Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) a year from green energy projects. This equates to 10-30 MW of renewable energy-

enough for 20,000 average households. The company's Tony Perrin says the submissions cover a range of technologies including wind, biomass, waste and biogas. "This is a strong response and indicates the depth of interest in Western Australia in developing the renewable energy industry," he says. "This could be a significant boost for the local industry." Sourcing the 90,000 RECs a year will help Western Australia meet its targets under the national Mandated Renewable Energy Target policy. The company aims to finalise contracts in time for delivery of the first RECs from 2004.
