The Victorian Government has released policy stating that it intends to increase the state’s renewable energy component to 10% by 2010. The policy aims to drive a market led scheme to achieve this objective while also developing a diverse, innovative & sustainable energy industry; Australian Business Council for Sustainable Energy (BCSE).
However, there seems to be little ‘proof in the pudding’ and some government departments do not practice what they’re preaching according to the National Leader, Peter Ryan. A review of the Dept. of Sustainability & Environment uses 6.5% more electricity & 13% water than it did 3 years ago.
