Backing better access to induction for Victorians

Renew welcomes the Victorian government proposal to include induction cooktops in the Victorian Energy Upgrades program.

Victoria has a critical need to electrify homes to reduce dependence on fossil gas, reduce cost of living pressures on households from high gas costs, reduce the health impacts from indoor gas use in cooking, and meet the state’s existing emissions reduction targets.

Reducing the upfront costs of replacing gas cooking appliances with efficient, electric induction cooking is an important measure to support the broader electrification agenda. The Victorian Energy Upgrades program can bring down the costs of induction and enable more households to make the switch.
