VRET Submission: Have Your Say

Time is running out to have your say on what Victoria’s Renewable Energy Target should be.

We know we need to get to 100% clean energy as soon as possible, and our calculations show that Victoria can easily reach at least 30% by 2020 and 50% by 2025.

We just need to look overseas to see what’s possible when governments take the lead in fostering clean energy. Scotland, a country with a similar size population and economy to Victoria, has seen a five-fold growth in renewable energy since 2004 (adding 14,000 GWh of output). If Victoria could ...

Scotland, a country with a similar size population and economy to Victoria, has seen a five-fold growth in renewable energy since 2004 (adding 14,000 GWh of output). If Victoria could match that amount in the next ten years, retire two ageing coal-fired power stations, and add some more rooftop solar, we’d reach a 50% renewable energy target.

Put in your submission before Wednesday September 30, calling for achievable but ambitious targets.
