Victorians use energy every day. It's essential for running our businesses, our economy and our lives.
While the energy sector is now privately owned, the Victorian Government aims to ensure all consumers have access to essential energy services. We invest in the development of innovative energy technologies. We build and support the energy industry through policy development and regulation. We also help Victorians manage their own energy use.
