Update on Victoria’s Gas Substitution Roadmap

The Victorian Government is continuing to develop Victoria’s Gas Substitution Roadmap – the Government’s plan to decarbonise the gas sector while ensuring Victorians have access to an affordable, secure, reliable, and safe supply of energy.

The Victorian Government is committed to ensuring a smooth transition to a decarbonised gas sector and will continue to work with you on the key issues and initiatives to help support the transition.

It is expected that the Roadmap will be released in the first half of 2022 and will detail the Victorian Government’s priorities and actions for decarbonising the gas sector. The Roadmap will be made available here on Engage Victoria.

Overview of Victoria's Gas Substitution Roadmap

The Victorian Government is exploring sustainable alternatives and pathways for the gas sector to transition to net zero emissions and is developing a Gas Substitution Roadmap to provide a strategic framework for decarbonising natural gas in Victoria.

The Gas Substitution Roadmap will detail the transition pathways and identify policy mechanisms to achieve Victoria’s emissions reduction targets through reduced fugitive emissions, more efficient use of gas, electrification and increased use of alternative gases such as hydrogen and biogas.

The Victorian Government is committed to transitioning to fully sustainable sources of energy whilst maintaining energy affordability, security, reliability and safety, and creating clean energy jobs and new skills.
