Bringing home the Victorian Renewable Energy Target

Bringing Home the Victorian Renewable Energy Target (VRET)

After a community campaign that has lasted over three years, the Andrews government has committed to Victorian Renewable Energy Targets of 25 percent by 2020 and 40 percent by 2025.  

Meeting the target will see 5,400 MW of new wind and solar farms built across the state, attracting up to $9 billion in new investment, and create up to 11,000 jobs over the decade.

It’s fair to say that over the last few years, Friends of the Earth’s Yes 2 Renewables campaign has transformed energy politics and policy in Victoria.

Now, we're on the cusp of seeing the Victorian Renewable Energy Target enshrined in legislation, and need your help to bring it home.
