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 throughout 2021 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.

A consultation paper has been prepared to seek the views of the Victorian community and industry to help us better understand the opportunities and challenges that this transition will bring. The paper discusses potential transition pathways to achieve net zero emissions in the gas sector in Victoria and the key issues that must be considered during the transition.

We invite written submissions on the topics and themes raised in this consultation paper. Questions are posed throughout the paper to assist you in developing your submission. You may elect to only respond to the questions of most interest to you or your organisation.
