The Roadmap identifies the following four priority areas:

  • Transforming Victoria's generation stock towards renewable energy
  • Addressing barriers to distributed generation and storage
  • Encouraging household and community renewable generation
  • Expanding the Government's role in facilitating the uptake of renewable energy

Public consultation on the Roadmap was carried out in September 2015. This consultation included public forums in Melbourne, Castlemaine, Mildura, Morwell and Frankston, as well as a request for submissions from members of the public.The views received during this process have fed into the development of the Victorian Renewable Energy Action Plan. The Action Plan sets out long-term actions to drive renewable energy investment in Victoria.

Victoria's Regional Renewable Energy Roadmaps

The development of a suite of individual but aligned renewable energy strategies for Barwon South West, Grampians, Loddon Mallee, Gippsland and Hume are now available.

Specific to each region, these Roadmaps have involved wide community consultation and include analysis of supply chain opportunities, skills, infrastructure, manufacturing and transmission opportunities.Visit Engage Vic for details of the community consultation process.

Each Roadmap provides critical intelligence to business, industry and communities seeking to establish or expand new energy technology development, manufacturing or renewable energy generation in Victoria. Scroll down to visit each Roadmap.

In addition, an economic and demographic modelling calculator is available. Link to Remplan to see a range of social-economic reporting – by region, LGA and renewable energy zone to help understand the economic opportunities presented by renewable energy technology.
