Victoria’s gas decarbonisation imperative 

Natural gas has been an abundant, low-cost energy source in Victoria for decades.

With over 2 million residential, commercial and industrial gas customers throughout the state, our reliance on natural gas is unmatched in Australia.

As Victoria strives to achieve net zero emissions by 2050, decarbonising the gas sector will be as crucial as it is complex.

The Committee is pleased to partner with Infrastructure Victoria to deliver this special member forum, which will explore the steps Victoria could take to end its reliance on natural gas.

Infrastructure Victoria CEO, Dr Jonathan Spear, will unpack the findings from its substantive report – Towards 2050: Gas infrastructure in a net zero emissions economy – including the nature and timing of decisions the Victorian Government should take to decarbonise the gas sector.

A panel discussion featuring Dr Spear, Arup’s Australasian Hydrogen Leader, Patrick Gorr, and Deloitte’s Director of Energy Transition, Liz Boylan, will follow.


When: Wednesday, 12 October 2022 | 4:00pm – 6:00pm
