2018 Review of the National Wind Farm Commissioner
6 March 2018: The Authority tasked by the Government to review the Commissioner's role in 2018.
The National Wind Farm Commissioner was appointed by the Australian Government in late 2015 in response to community concerns about wind farms. At that time, the Government said it would review the role in 2018.
The Minister for the Environment and Energy, Josh Frydenberg, has asked the Climate Change Authority to consider to what extent the Commissioner is fulfilling its terms of reference, the ongoing need for the role, its scope and possible models for funding.
