The public release of this Request for Proposal (RFP) via the Victorian Tenders Website formally marks the commencement of this reverse auction. In this auction, the Victorian Government will award commercial contracts in support of up to 650 MW of new renewable energy generation.

The RFP is broken into four parts;

  2. Specifications
  3. VRET Support Agreement
  4. Proponent's Proposal


The RFP contains key information regarding the detailed terms of participating in the auction, all aspects of the design of the auction, technical, eligibility and evaluation specifications, as well as the nature of the State's support over the 15-year Support Agreement.
