The Victorian Government is ensuring Victoria captures the benefits of a green hydrogen economy through the $2 million Victorian Hydrogen Investment Program (VHIP).

VHIP sets out a clear pathway to developing the Victorian hydrogen sector across three activity streams:

Market testing

  • Through the Request for Industry Submissions process, the Victorian Government will determine the current extent of market interest and opportunity for hydrogen, including status of potential projects. This process will inform future investment programs.

Industry development

  • The Victorian Government will conduct extensive stakeholder consultation through a Hydrogen Industry Development Discussion Paper. This will build a solid understanding of the sector's primary drivers, barriers, opportunities for growth and other capabilities. The Discussion Paper will be used to create a Victorian Hydrogen Industry Development Plan.

Victorian Government investment program

  • The Victorian Government will provide funding to leverage hydrogen research, trials, pilots and demonstrations, creating a strong base of industry knowledge, skills and seed funding.

The Request for Industry Submissions is open from Wednesday 19 December 2018 to 5pm Thursday 28 February 2019.

Please read the RFIS Application Guidelines for more information on how to submit.
