The Achieving 100% Renewable Energy in Noosa Report, known to ZEN Inc as the Roadmap report prepared by Dr Rob Passey from ITP Renewables defines a clear pathway our region should follow to achieve a zero emissions future.

Zero Emissions Noosa Inc has undertaken a great deal of analysis and assessment of our region’s energy patterns and detailed what we believe is an achievable path to this goal. The report was delivered in October 2018 and we are well on our way to tracking our progression toward the target. The full report is available here for review.


Strategic Plan

The Roadmap report is supported by our own strategic plan. Zero Emissions Noosa inc has a focus on two key areas at this point of time, transport and electricity. There are a number of key projects being undertaken by the group in 2019, interested parties are welcome to view our strategic thinking here.
