Renewable Energy Target - Its retention is vital for the Australian Sugar Industry

Australia’s Renewable Energy Target (RET) aims to generate at least 20% of the country’s total electricity from renewable sources by 2020, providing regional industry economic and employment benefits and saving money for its citizens. The RET is vital for the Australian sugar industry and underpins continuation of sugar industry investment.
