Victoria has Renewable Energy Targets to deliver up to 5,400 megawatts of renewable generation by 2025, delivering approximately $9 billion in investment and up to 4000 jobs.
Several of Australia’s most significant renewable energy projects are delivered by regional Victorian businesses. This includes a project to deliver wind farms to assist Canberra, Australia’s capital city, in reaching its ambitious renewal energy targets.
In Victoria we have an established new energy technology industry that researches and develops world-class renewable energy solutions from sources as varied as wind, solar, marine and biofuels. By moving to Melbourne, you can work in a growing industry with innovative projects, such as the largest wind farm in the Southern Hemisphere.
