The Large-scale Renewable Energy Target creates a financial incentive for the installation of
renewable energy power stations. The target is designed to reduce emissions in the electricity sector and encourage additional generation from sustainable and renewable sources.
Investment in the renewables industry is dependent on the long-term economics of specific projects and is influenced by a range of market factors. Investors make informed decisions by analysing the available market data.

The Australian Government has set a
Renewable Energy Target (RET) of 33 000 gigawatt hours of additional renewable energy generation by 2020.
The target is in reach, with 14,620MW of capacity accredited and another 4,697MW of capacity currently firmly announced.
In 2016 we said for the 2020 target to be reached the total capacity of new renewable energy power projects required through to 2018 was 6000MW. 86 per cent of these new renewable energy projects required are now accredited or firmly announced.
Every month the Clean Energy Regulator publishes Large-scale Renewable Energy Target supply data files to track investment in renewable energy.
