The Victorian Hydrogen Investment Program (VHIP) covers three activity streams to kick-start the development of the Victorian hydrogen sector:1. Market testing – through the Request for Industry Submissions (RFIS) process, the VictorianGovernment will determine the current extent of market interest and opportunity for hydrogen,including status of potential projects. This process will inform future investment programs.2. Policy development – in 2019, by undertaking stakeholder consultation through a Victorian Hydrogen Industry Development Discussion Paper, which will be used to develop a Victorian Hydrogen Industry Development Plan (IDP).3. Victorian Government investment program – funding to leverage hydrogen research, trials, pilots and demonstrations, creating a strong base of industry knowledge, skills and seed funding. The investment program will be based on the RFIS process and aligned with the IDP.
