The Australian Government has developed a comprehensive plan to move to a clean energy future. Central to that plan is the introduction of a carbon price that will cut pollution in the cheapest and most effective way and drive investment in clean energy sources such as solar, gas and wind.


To harness Australia’s abundant renewable energy resources, the Australian Government’s plan will drive innovation and investment worth billions of dollars in renewable energy through the carbon price, the Renewable Energy Target (RET), the Australian Renewable Energy Agency and the Clean Energy Finance Corporation.


The RET scheme is designed to deliver on the Australian Government’s commitment to ensure that the equivalent of at least 20 per cent of Australia’s electricity comes from renewable sources by 2020.


Renewable Energy Target

The RET expands on the previous Mandatory Renewable Energy Target (MRET), which began in 2001. From 1 January 2011, the RET has operated as two parts:

  1. Large-scale Renewable Energy Target (LRET), and
  2. Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES).
