Renewable Hydrogen Industry

 

Renewable Hydrogen Industry

The Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation (JTSI) is leading the State Government's work to facilitate a renewable hydrogen industry for Western Australia.

The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) is supporting the State Government's focus on a renewable hydrogen industry for Western Australia.

With the world shifting to a low-emissions future, demand for clean energy sources is increasing. Hydrogen produced from renewable energy (renewable hydrogen) has significant potential to be part of this new clean energy landscape for energy, feedstock and transport.

Renewable hydrogen is an emerging technology that will play an important part in WA's energy future.

Western Australia has many attributes that provide a strong comparative advantage in the growing global renewable hydrogen market including world-class renewable energy resources, large unpopulated land-mass, established energy infrastructure and strong trading partnerships with Asia.

The Western Australian Renewable Hydrogen Strategy - launched by the Minister for Regional Development, the Hon Alannah MacTiernan MLC, in July 2019 - sets out the State Government’s strategic areas of focus for the development of the industry in WA.

The Strategy aims to harness WA's comparative advantages - which include world-class renewable energy resources, vast land mass and proud history of exporting energy to international markets - and drive WA's position as a major producer and exporter of renewable hydrogen.
