Inquiry on achieving 100 percent renewables passed by Victorian State Parliament

The Victorian Parliament on Wednesday supported a Greens motion in the Legislative Council, looking at pathways for Victoria to be powered by 100 per cent clean energy, including the economic and employment benefits of such an energy transition.

Victoria currently has a 50 per cent renewables target by 2030. Coal currently provides 70 per cent of the state’s electricity.

The Inquiry won’t start until later in 2020 or early 2021, highlighted Samantha Ratnam in breaking the news in a Facebook post.

100% renewables campaign launch

On Sunday, 2 May, Climate Action Moreland joined with Beyond Zero Emissions in launching the 100% renewables campaign in Brunswick – calling for a switch from polluting coal power stations to 100% clean green renewable energy like wind and solar.

CAM was joined by over 60 climate action groups around the country also launching the 100% renewables campaign in their local area.

‘We want all our local candidates, Labor, Liberal and Green, to commit to supporting renewable energy. Right now we have a choice – we can continue our dependence on fossil fuels or we can make the switch to 100% renewable energy Mechanisms like a national feed in tarif are proven to be effective and will drive investment in large scale technology.’ said launch organiser Ellen Roberts.

We have the community support for the change, what we lack is the political will from the major parties. The demise of Rudd’s emissions trading scheme means we need better, more effective initiatives.’
