Welcome to Victoria, Australia, where innovation and sustainability converge to create a dynamic renewable energy sector.

We have set renewable energy and emissions reduction targets that put us at the forefront of the global energy transition.

Our targets also cover specific technologies, including offshore wind, energy storage, and zero-emissions vehicles.

To make sure we hit our 95% renewable energy target, we will also need new investment in critical areas such as wind, large-scale solar, renewable hydrogen, bioenergy and digital energy and innovation.

By 2035, we will need 25 gigawatts of new renewable energy and storage capacity.

This creates unprecedented opportunities for investment, as we will need across the energy sector an estimated $35 billion of additional investment by 2035 to achieve this goal.

The Victorian Government is setting up to lead this transition by establishing important new bodies, including the State Electricity Commission, VicGrid, Offshore Wind Energy Victoria and Solar Victoria.

At the heart of Victoria, Melbourne is Australia's fastest growing city, with an economy to match.

And Victoria has been a leading destination for global investment for decades.

We are an attractive location for energy investment due to our world-class energy workforce, our leading advanced manufacturing sector, our modern power grid now to be strengthened to meet the demands of our energy transition and our commitment to research and development.
