Interested proponents can find out more about Tasmania and the hydrogen opportunity from the Office of the Coordinator-General – the primary point of access to government for investors.
The Office of the Coordinator-General has developed an investment-specific Tasmanian Renewable Hydrogen Prospectus, which provides an investment overview of Tasmania, and in particular, the Bell Bay Advanced Manufacturing Zone, as an ideal location for hydrogen production.
As a part of the National Hydrogen Strategy, Geoscience Australia developed a hydrogen mapping tool which showcases the hydrogen production potential of regions throughout Australia.
Hydro Tasmania, Tasmania’s state-owned electricity generator, presents its analysis around Tasmania’s competitive advantages for green hydrogen production, as well as its international price competitiveness.
Australia’s National Hydrogen Strategy sets a vision for clean, innovative, safe and competitive hydrogen industry that benefits all Australians.
The Strategy outlines an adaptive approach that equips Australia to scale up quickly as the hydrogen market grows. It sets out a set of nationally coordinated actions involving governments, industry, and the community. Tasmania is actively working to implement the National Strategy, as well as our own Tasmanian Renewable Hydrogen Action Plan.
To inform the development of the National Hydrogen Strategy, a series of reviews, studies, research and analysis were undertaken.

Future Fuels CRC – Advancing Hydrogen: Learning from 19 plans to advance hydrogen from across the globe
A report that summarises hydrogen strategies and industry roadmaps around the world.
ARENA’s purpose is to improve the competitiveness of renewable energy technologies and increase the supply of renewable energy through innovation that benefits Australian consumers and businesses. It recently ran a $70 million renewable hydrogen development funding round, with applications currently being assessed. It also has funding available for renewable energy projects, including hydrogen projects, under its Advancing Renewables Program.
The CEFC invests in projects that further Australia’s transition to lower emissions. This includes for example, agriculture, energy generation and storage, infrastructure, property, transport and waste. It has established the $300 million Advancing Hydrogen Fund, which will be made available to support the growth of a clean, innovative, safe and competitive hydrogen industry.
