Australia's Victoria and Tasmania RE tender for 1.7 GW

This is the country’s largest tender for the month of May.

The Australian government has launched a total of 1.7 gigawatts (GW) of renewable energy tender in the states of Victoria and Tasmania under the Capacity Investment Scheme.

In a statement, Chris Bowen, Minister for Climate Change and Energy, said 1.4 GW of the launched tender is allocated to Victoria, with the capacity enough to power at least 700,000 households.

Tasmania, meanwhile, will be guaranteed at least 300 megawatts of new projects.

The tender came, following the earlier allocation of 2.2 GW for New South Wales, 300 MW for South Australia, and 500 MW for Western Australia.

The Capacity Investment Scheme aims to operate 32 GW of renewable projects between now and 2030.
