The Renewable Energy Target is an Australian Government scheme designed to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases in the electricity sector and encourage the additional generation of electricity from sustainable and renewable sources.
Renewable energy was identified as an important industry for Australia to give customers the choice of buying green electricity and reduce reliance on scarce fossil fuels. In addition, the battery storage system will reduce the price volatility as well as smoothing out power supply during high demand periods.
