SA Labor unveils $590m hydrogen plan to power new jobs and industry

A 200MW hydrogen power station, 250MWe capacity of hydrogen electrolysers and a hydrogen storage facility. That’s exactly what the Malinauskas Labor Government wants to develop in South Australia under its Hydrogen Jobs Plan, unveiled today (23rd March).

If elected in March 2022, Labor’s plans will become a reality and create tremendous opportunities for the state’s clean energy industry, at a time when South Australia has the worst employment rate in the country.

A plan that could majorly boost Australia’s clean energy future, the proposal looks to develop what SA Labor believes to be the world’s largest hydrogen production facility and power plant, where cheap, renewable energy is used to power 250MW electrolysers that separate water into oxygen and hydrogen.
