Victoria’s Gas Substitution Roadmap
There is no pathway to net zero emissions in Victoria that doesn’t include getting our homes off gas. The residential sector makes up over 40% of gas demand in Victoria – overwhelmingly used for heating and hot water.
The good news is that there are clear alternatives to gas. All-electric homes powered by renewable energy are already accessible and are already saving residents money on energy bills.
Renew has called on the Victorian government to build a strategy for substituting residential gas that leaves nobody behind. This means ending new gas connections, improving how we build our homes, and tackling the barriers to renewable energy-powered homes faced by renters and social housing residents.
