History was made earlier this month when the Victorian Government set a Victorian Renewable Energy Target (VRET) of 40 per cent renewables by 2025. The Greens played a key role in winning the VRET campaign. Here's how it went down. Before the 2014 election, Labor had no policy for a VRET. The Greens joined with Friends of the Earth and Yes2Renewables to make VRET a key election issue, so that Labor couldn't ignore it. We publicly released a VRET policy, made it a key issue at candidates forums, and called on Labor to do the same.
