Renewables Tasmania

Renewable hydrogen

A dramatic shift in how we produce, supply and use energy is happening all around the world. As countries seek to decarbonise their economies, renewable energy alternatives are rising to the challenge of reducing emissions and powering a greener future. One of the most exciting is hydrogen.

Hydrogen, produced from renewable energy, makes great environmental and economic sense. Tasmania's abundance of natural energy resources puts us in an ideal position to capitalise on everything hydrogen has to offer.

Key supports for a renewable hydrogen industry in Tasmania include:

  • ready-to-go renewable energy from our world-class wind and expandable hydropower generation
  • high-quality industrial precincts with access to deep-water ports
  • strong transmission infrastructure
  • road and rail infrastructure.

The Tasmanian Government has released the Tasmanian Renewable Hydrogen Action Plan, with a vision for our island to become a world leader in large-scale renewable hydrogen production for domestic use and export. Tasmania’s low-cost, reliable renewable energy resources underpin this plan, supported by four key pillars:

  • exploring the opportunities for using locally produced renewable hydrogen in Tasmania and for export
  • providing financial support for renewable hydrogen projects for export and domestic use, plus investment attraction activities with international trade partners
  • ensuring a robust and supportive regulatory framework, and the assessment of supporting infrastructure
  • building community and industry awareness, developing skills, and supporting research and education.

The Tasmanian Government also contributed to the development of the National Hydrogen Strategy, and our commitment is to work with industry, other governments, and the community to develop a renewable hydrogen industry that provides ongoing benefits for Tasmanians.
