Renewables ‘need to be renewed’ every two decades: Bridget McKenzie

Renewables ‘need to be renewed’ every two decades: Bridget McKenzie

Nationals Senator Bridget McKenzie says renewable projects “need to be renewed” every two decades.

Opposition leader Peter Dutton says he will not quit the Paris Accord or give up on net zero.

It is understood Mr Dutton's recent dismissal of the 2030 climate target was due to the goal being unachievable.

“Renewable projects actually need to be renewed every two decades, so, before we even get to 2050, we’re going to have to roll out these wind turbines and these solar farms again,” Ms McKenzie told Sky News Australia.

“We want them to complement a type of energy production that’s going to last us well into this century so that we can maintain our prosperity and our sustainability.

“That’s the vision we’re going to be taking.”
