Submission to Parliamentary Inquiry into Community Energy Projects

Environment Victoria welcomes the Andrews government’s recent announcement of Victorian Renewable Energy Targets (VRET) of 25% by 2020 and 40% by 2025. We see community owned renewable energy (CORE) projects playing a critical role in the achievement of these and potentially more ambitious targets, while also delivering a range of job-creation, environmental and social benefits.

We urge the committee to endorse the recommendations outlined in this submission, to grow Victoria’s community energy sector and maximise the benefits to Victoria’s economy and environment.
