Tasmania outlines commitment to renewable hydrogen

The Tasmanian Government has outlined its vision to be a leader in large-scale renewable hydrogen production and a significant global supplier of renewable hydrogen by 2030, following the release of its draft Tasmanian Renewable Hydrogen Action Plan this week.

The draft plan is an important step forward for Tasmania and is expected to complement the National Hydrogen Strategy which is set to be unveiled this Friday.

Australian Hydrogen Council CEO Fiona Simon congratulated the Tasmanian Government for outlining its commitment to renewable hydrogen.

“Renewable hydrogen has great potential, particularly in states and territories that have abundant renewable energy sources and well-established infrastructure.

“We look forward to working with the Tasmanian Government as it finalises its action plan in the coming months.”

The draft plan is open for consultation until Friday 10 January 2020 and is expected for final release in early 2020. For more information, visit the Tasmanian Government’s website here.
