SLI 2011 No. 222 Regulations as made
These Regulations amend the Renewable Energy (Electricity) Regulations 2001 to exclude biomass from native forests as an eligible renewable energy resource, as announced as part of the Government’s suite of new policies and initiatives under the clean energy future plan. This amendment means that the defined source of ‘wood waste’ no longer includes products, by-products and waste associated with or produced from clearing or harvesting of native forests, subject to appropriate transitional arrangements for existing RET accredited power stations under prescribed circumstances.
