Renewable energy target

Feb 25, 2014

Q. The Renewable Energy Target scheme encourages investment in renewable energy by requiring electricity retail companies to purchase a certain amount of renewable energy each year. By the year 2020, at least 20% of electricity must come from renewable resources.

Do you think this target of 20% renewable energy by 2020 is too high, too low or about right?
