The Victorian Renewable Hydrogen Industry Development Plan (the Plan), launched on 26 February 2021, provides the blueprint for growing a renewable hydrogen economy over the next 5 years. The development of a renewable hydrogen industry will support Victoria’s climate change ambitions and its net-zero emissions target by 2050. Decarbonisation and economic recovery can be accelerated and promoted across Victoria by supporting the establishment of a thriving renewable hydrogen industry.

The Renewable Hydrogen Business Ready Fund provides $1.0 million to assist businesses to transition to renewable hydrogen. Businesses can apply for up to $150,000 in matched funding for a business case or feasibility study project. The Victorian Government encourages applications from a wide range of industries including but not limited to agriculture, manufacturing, commercial users, water corporations and gas producers and distributors.

The Fund is part of the Accelerating Victoria’s Hydrogen Industry program (AVHI), which focuses on the development and deployment of zero-emissions renewable hydrogen technologies in Victoria.

Business cases or feasibility study projects must be in Victoria and completed by 20 May 2022.
