The Renewable Energy Party was an Australian political party registered by the Australian Electoral Commission on 22 March 2016.[3]

In the 2016 federal election the Renewable Energy Party fielded two senate candidates in each of New South Wales, Queensland, Tasmania, Victoria and Western Australia, and a total of eight candidates for the House of Representatives in Victoria (4), Tasmania (3) and New South Wales (1),[4] none of whom were elected.[5]

On 1 February 2018, the Australian Electoral Commission issued a notice that it was considering deregistering the party on the grounds that it had ceased to have at least 500 members.[6] On 26 March 2018, the party was deregistered due to failure to respond to the earlier notice.[7]
