Victoria deserves praise for promising a rapid shift from coal to renewables. Now comes the hard part

 Transformations don’t come much bigger than that proposed in Victoria by
Daniel Andrews last week. At the time of typing, about two-thirds of the
electricity generated in Victoria comes from burning brown coal –
basically mud – in old, sometimes failing, generators in the Latrobe
Valley. It is the most polluting form of large-scale power generation.

If the Andrews Labor government wins a third term at next month’s state
election, which seems likely, it has promised to legislate a target that
would mean shutting the remaining coal plants and replacing them with
renewable energy and back-up generation by 2035 – and probably earlier.
