Consultation on the Victorian Government’s first Victorian Energy Jobs Plan is underway, and all Victorians can now provide feedback to support its design.

This plan will support Victoria to develop the workforce required to deliver our nation-leading target of 95% renewable electricity generation by 2035 and to drive investment confidence to enable the energy transition.

Help shape Victoria's renewable energy future

Submissions received in response to the Victorian Energy Jobs Plan Consultation Paper, available on Engage Victoria, will also inform our approach to the future Wind Worker Training Centre and a Hydrogen Worker Training Centre.

The Consultation Paper has been informed by engagement conducted throughout 2023, including at the State Electricity Commission (SEC) Jobs and Skills Forum, targeted interviews and public workshops at the Careers for Net Zero Fair.

Submissions in response to the Consultation Paper can be made until 3pm AEST on Wednesday, 3 April 2024.

An integrated approach

The Plan will draw on the foundation of the Clean Economy Workforce Development Strategy and stakeholder feedback.

It will support the building of a fit-for-purpose energy industry across the supply chain, further complementing work led by the Minister for Jobs and Industry to maximise local jobs and industry development on energy projects, through the Local Jobs First Policy and Major Projects Skills Guarantee.

In addition, the Victorian Skilled and Business Migration program is attracting skilled migrants to work in the energy sector. It will also complement the Victorian Skills Plan and align with the intentions of the $50 million TAFE Clean Energy Fund.

Key principles

  • A commitment to First Peoples, guided by the principles of self-determination
  • Balancing priorities to support a sustainably developed future
  • Improving Victoria’s economy, environment and liveability without negatively impacting those most vulnerable to change or at risk of exclusion
