GeelongPort is embracing renewable energy, and this week, our CEO Brett Winter, talking at Australia Wind Energy 2023, reinforced a vision of Geelong – complete with its proud history of manufacturing and innovation – being a renewable energy hub that helps power Victoria’s future.
According to the Net Zero Australia study, offshore wind has the potential to generate 41 GW of power by 2040, which would require a capital investment of around $188 billion and 3,500 turbines over the next decade.
There are a lot of opportunities for Australian ports to support the transition to clean energy and the panel of experts discussed what will be required to meet the needs of this large industry.
Last year, we released plans to develop up to 25 hectares of land for a wind farm cargo hub. Through GeelongPort’s proposed offshore wind farm hub, we could support government and industry to deliver one of the most exciting forms of renewable energy.
