The Australia Institute has welcomed the State Labor Opposition’s hydrogen energy plan for South Australia.
“Clean sources of power, including green hydrogen produced from 100% renewable electricity, are the future of energy. Putting South Australia at the centre of the global energy transition is the smart thing to do,” said Noah Schultz-Byard, SA Director at The Australia Institute.
“South Australia is already a leader in renewable energy and, by committing to funding exclusively green hydrogen, the state is now leading the nation once again.
“Other jurisdictions, including the Federal Government, have so far failed to rule out the funding of dirty, fossil fuelled hydrogen power. If they don’t catch up with South Australia and start to invest in the clean energy technologies of the future soon, they will be left behind.”
