The Victorian government 2010 climate change whitepaper was released on 26 July 2010.

Goals included in the whitepaper are:

  • Set Victoria a target to reduce emissions by at least 20% by 2020 compared to 2000 levels (equivalent to 40% per capita)
  • Commit to reducing the greenhouse gas emissions of Victorian brown coal-fired generators by up to four million tonnes over the next four years, culminating in a total saving of 28 million tonnes by 2020, equivalent to the closure of two units of Hazelwood Power Station
  • Implement a plan to raise the energy efficiency of Victorian homes to an average of 5 Stars by 2020
  • Put Victoria on track to generate 5% of our electricity from solar energy by 2020
  • Create jobs by taking advantage of the opportunities in a low carbon economy
  • Prepare Victoria for the physical impacts of climate
