The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) is supporting emerging energy industries so that Victoria is at the forefront of the transition to clean energy.

The Victorian Hydrogen Investment Program (VHIP) develops the potential for green hydrogen technologies to grow.

The VHIP is informed by the growing expertise of industry, academics and communities, as well as drawing on previous experience and best practice both locally and internationally.

The Green Hydrogen Discussion Paper is designed to inform the VHIP by building on the information received through the market testing Request for Industry Submissions process undertaken in early 2019. It sets out issues and poses questions designed to help guide submissions that will contribute to the development of a Victorian Green Hydrogen Industry Development Plan.

The Industry Development Plan will provide a roadmap to establishing a thriving green hydrogen economy, including future investment opportunities for the Victorian Government. Information gathered through this process will also inform the development of broader Victorian Government energy policies.

Submissions to this discussion paper containing additional information and issues contained beyond the scope of the set questions posed in this discussion paper will be considered in the development of the Green Hydrogen Industry Development Plan.

On 5 February 2020 submissions closed. Thank you to everyone who contributed and submitted to the Discussion Paper.

Outlined below are the public submissions to the Green Hydrogen Discussion Paper.

For inquiries about the submission process, please contact emerging.energy@delwp.vic.gov.au.
