Tasmanian Government pushes forward with a hydrogen-fuelled future

Progressing with its renewable energy future, the Tasmanian Government has released the Tasmanian Renewable Hydrogen Action Plan Status Report.

The report follows the Australian state’s $2.6m investment for the feasibility of three large-scale renewable hydrogen projects as part of its $50m Tasmanian Renewable Hydrogen Industry Development Funding Program.

Released on Wednesday (25th Nov) the status report recognises Tasmania’s potential to become Australia’s renewable hydrogen epicentre. The report also outlines:

  • The delivery of the Tasmanian Renewable Hydrogen Industry Development Funding Program.
  • A series of investigations underway to examine the opportunities for domestic hydrogen use in Tasmania.
  • Work to develop the Bell Bay Advanced Manufacturing Zone, and other suitable sites, as potential hydrogen hubs.
  • Leading the development of a hydrogen community education and engagement strategy nationally.
  • Ongoing trade and investment work undertaken by the Office of the Coordinator-General; and
  • Progressing work to prepare Tasmanian workers to have the necessary skills to support a future hydrogen industry.
  • The Status Report will be updated periodically to keep the Tasmanian community informed about the important work we are doing to secure Tasmania’s renewable energy future.

The full status report can be accessed here.
