Future Energy Strategy

Priority areas for action and headline actions

To achieve net zero emissions by 2050, we need to transform the transport sector to zero emission energy, building on the Future Transport commitment to transition to a cost-effective, low emission energy supply.

Renewable electricity is currently the only mature zero emission energy with the potential to power transport at scale.

This is why the Future Energy Strategy and Action Plan has a particular focus on energy transformation, and the steps we can take now to transition the transport sector to renewable energy. These include:

  1. Electrifying transport modes using renewable energy where feasible
  2. Supporting demand for renewable energy.

The following section identifies priority areas for action at the cluster, transport sector and economy-wide level to build a strong foundation for the journey to a net zero transport system.

The headline actions have been developed to have a high impact on the priority areas for action. More detail on the headline actions, as well as all other actions, can be found in the Action Plan.

Six principles for Future Transport

The Future Transport 2056 Strategy is focused on six key principles for the future of mobility in the state, which together aim to positively impact the economy, communities and environment of NSW.
