Australian state looks to lock in renewable energy target

Victoria has taken steps to become the first Australian state to enshrine its renewable electricity targets in law.

The state is aiming to cement targets of 25% renewable power by 2020 and 40% by 2025 in June 2016. It plans to do this by holding renewable auctions, the first of which is for 650 MW of worth of new projects.

However, the legislation still needs to make it past the upper house.
