Renewables Tasmania

Tasmania has a natural competitive advantage in renewable energy. Our renewable energy sector covers the generation of electricity through our proven water (hydroelectric) and world-class wind resources, and emerging renewable hydrogen, ocean, geothermal and biomass resources. Tasmania also has significant existing renewable energy research, industry and government knowledge and capabilities.

Priorities for this sector include:

  • deliver effective, efficient, transparent regulation of the Tasmanian energy sector
  • a secure and reliable energy system
  • lowest possible energy prices for Tasmanian consumers
  • grow the Tasmanian economy and create jobs from renewable energy.
