Ineco Scope of Work:

The NSW Government is in the development phase for the State’s first Renewable Energy Zone (REZ) in the Central-West Orana region. The Central-West Orana REZ is approximately 20,000 square kilometres centred by Dubbo and Dunedoo, on the land of the Wiradjuri, Wailwan and Kamilaroi people. As part of this, Ineco under Alexandra Venice Consulting (AVC) are providing expertise in sustainability management for the delivery of this REZ, ensuring that its implementation adheres to the highest standards.

As part of this, Ineco assists AVC by providing expert guidance and advice on sustainably practices and strategies. We are actively working with the Network Operator (NO) to achieve an Infrastructure Sustainability (IS) rating of “Excellent”, and by reviewing the reference design to benchmark the design against IS rating requirements and identify opportunities for improvement. By Coordinating with Infrastructure Sustainability Council to clarify any aspects of the IS submission, we will support AVC and EnergyCo in the development of sustainability and environmental policies and procedures, as well as undertake audit of NO design and construction method against the conditions of approval.
