|Description||Safeguarding the Future: Australia's Response to Climate Change is a broad strategy that was enumerated in 1998. The package sought to stimulate innovative technologies and provide an ongoing base for commercially competitive renewable energy, including international competitive measures.
The strategy's measures included:
Mandatory Renewable Energy Target (MRET)
Renewable Energy Innovation Investment Fund (REIIF) - since renamed Renewable Energy Equity Fund (REEF)
Renewable Energy Technology Commercialisation Loans & Grants (integrated into the Renewable Energy Industry Programme)
Renewable Energy Showcase Programme
While this strategy was superseded in 2007, some individual component programmes are still active. Please see separate entries for programmes still current.
