The Victorian Government committed to Victorian renewable energy generation targets of 25 per cent by 2020 and 40 per cent by 2025. These targets are ambitious yet achievable. A competitive auction process will be used to help Victoria reach these targets. A consultation paper on the detailed design of the auction scheme is available here.

A major upgrade of Victoria's electricity infrastructure from 2013 to 2016 means that all households and small businesses in Melbourne and throughout the state have had their meters upgraded to a new smart meter. The use of smart meters is now providing benefits that were not available with the accumulation meters.
Victorian jobs and industry are dependent on the efficient regulation of high-pressure gas pipelines. Victoria’s 5,400 kilometre network of 217 licenced pipelines transports and distributes gas and other industrial products to Victorian communities and businesses.

Information on making a submission on the proposed Pipelines Regulations 2017 and Regulatory Impact Statement (RIS) are available here.
