Over the coming decades Victoria's sources of energy will diversify and come from different areas across the state. We will use more gas for electricity production and transport, and alternatives to oil will start to play a greater role in transport.

How we use our energy in the future will also need to change. Improved energy efficiency and a smarter electricity network will be needed to facilitate this transformation.
