Advancing Queensland’s hydrogen industry

Queensland Hydrogen Industry Strategy

3 June, 2019 –

A local hydrogen industry has the potential to create new jobs for Queensland, especially in the regions.

That’s why we’ve invested $19 million in the new Queensland Hydrogen Industry Strategy 2019–2024, including a $15 million industry development fund, to ensure the growth of a hydrogen industry in Queensland.

We have everything already in place to support a renewable hydrogen industry: solar, wind and biomass, a pro-business government, existing gas pipeline infrastructure, and first-class export facilities.

This five-year hydrogen plan will help us put more Queenslanders into work while unlocking significant export and economic opportunities for our state.

Queensland’s new hydrogen strategy focuses on five key areas:

  • Supporting innovation
  • Facilitating private investment
  • Effective policy frameworks
  • Building community awareness
  • Facilitating skills development
