Overview

Our energy system is changing. We are witnessing a shift to decentralised electricity generation from renewable energy resources coupled with an increase in energy storage, with generation plants ranging from small-scale behind the meter installations through to front of meter large-scale solar and wind.

There are opportunities for the implementation of new models and for the investment in clean generation projects. This presents opportunities for communities to determine where their energy comes from, how it’s generated, how its shared, and the community benefits that may be derived from large infrastructure developments in their region.

The Regional Renewable Energy Roadmaps involve community consultation in the development of individual regional renewable energy strategies for the purpose of providing intelligence to business, industry and communities seeking to establish or expand new energy technology development, manufacturing or renewable energy generation in Victoria.
