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
