New guidance to assist offshore renewable energy proponents
The offshore renewables environmental approvals guidance has now been finalised following a public consultation process.
The guidance was developed in collaboration with the Department of Climate Change, Energy the Environment and Water and is intended to assist stakeholders in understanding interactions between the licensing and environmental approvals processes of the Offshore Electricity Infrastructure Act 2021 and the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999.
The guidance highlights the key licensing and environmental approval steps for proponents and other interested parties, as well as indicative timing to support efficient primary environmental approval processes for offshore renewable energy developments.
