The Victoria Renewable Energy Target (VRET) was announced in 2016. It sets a target to source 25% of Victoria’s electricity from renewable sources by 2020 and 40% by 2025.
Despite the negative corporate and industry lobbying on the VRET in 2016-19, the Victorian Government increased the target from 25 to 50% by 2030 under the Renewable Energy (Jobs and Investment) Act 2017, enacted in 2020.
