Victorian Renewable Energy Targets (VRET)
In June 2016, the Victorian Government committed to Victorian renewable energy generation targets of 25 per cent by 2020 and 40 percent by 2025. As part of this commitment the Victorian Government has issued a tender to support new renewable energy project across the state, with an emphasis on benefits for the State’s economy though investment, local supply chains and jobs.
