Tasmanian Renewable Hydrogen Action Plan

The Tasmanian Renewable Hydrogen Action Plan sets out the Tasmanian Government’s vision to capitalise on our existing and expandable low-cost reliable renewable energy resources to become a world-leader in large-scale renewable hydrogen production for domestic use and export.

The Action Plan establishes four key pillars that will underpin the Tasmanian hydrogen vision:

  • 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, and continue investment attraction activities including with international trade partners
  • ensure a robust and supportive regulatory framework and assess supporting infrastructure
  • build community and industry awareness, develop skills, and support research and education.

The Tasmanian Government will work with industry, other governments, and the community to develop a renewable hydrogen industry that will provide ongoing benefits for Tasmanians.

The Tasmanian Renewable Hydrogen Action Plan has been developed to complement the COAG Energy Council’s National Hydrogen Strategy.
