The Cook Government will refresh its Renewable Hydrogen Strategy after successfully meeting its 2022 goals.

  • Stakeholders invited to comment on WA’s Renewable Hydrogen Strategy to 2030
  • WA Renewable Hydrogen Strategy to be refreshed after meeting its 2022 targets

The Cook Government will refresh its Renewable Hydrogen Strategy after successfully meeting its 2022 goals.

A consultation paper has now been released for feedback and will be open for four weeks.

Stakeholder input is critical to maximising the benefits to Western Australia and supporting the long-term growth of the renewable hydrogen industry.

The WA Government has committed almost $200 million to grow and support the industry.

The strategy contained four strategic focus areas for industry: export, remote application, hydrogen blending in natural gas networks, and transport.

Achievements from the Renewable Hydrogen Strategy 2022 include:

  • approving a project to export renewable hydrogen;
  • using renewable hydrogen in one remote location;
  • distributing renewable hydrogen in a WA gas network; and
  • making a refuelling facility for hydrogen vehicles available in WA.

Since 2019, there have been changes in the international environment including significant global policy shifts in the hydrogen and renewables industries.

The feedback on the consultation paper will be critical to the updated strategy, which is expected to be completed later this year.

The feedback form will be live from Friday, 22 September. For more information, visit Renewable hydrogen: strategy refresh consultation (

Comments attributed to Hydrogen Industry Minister Bill Johnston:

“Western Australia has established itself as a global leader in the emerging renewable hydrogen industry in less than four years.

“We know renewable hydrogen has a lead role to play in the energy transition to new technologies, especially the decarbonisation of heavy industry.

“Over the next decade, the global renewable hydrogen economy is predicted to grow rapidly.

“The Cook Government is seeking to build a renewable hydrogen industry which assists in diversifying and decarbonising the economy, on top of creating jobs for Western Australians.”
