We appreciate the opportunity to provide a submission on Infrastructure Victoria’s Interim Report Towards 2050: Gas infrastructure in a zero-emissions economy.
Under the Victorian Climate Change Act 2017, the Victorian Government has committed to a whole-of-economy, net zero emissions target by 2050. This transition, most notably the move away from natural gas, will incur significant costs that are likely to be passed on to Victorian consumers, regardless of the path chosen. This is why consumers’ motivations, abilities, and opportunities within this transition must remain central considerations in any decision making.
We outline the barriers and opportunities for consumers in our submission here.
