More support for Queensland hydrogen welcome

Solar Citizens today congratulates the Queensland Labor State Government on their commitment to kick-starting Queensland’s hydrogen industry, but says much more should be done.

“Today’s announcement for a further $10 million to develop Queensland’s hydrogen industry is welcome, but it’s not enough to turn the Sunshine State into a renewable hydrogen powerhouse,” said Solar Citizens’ National Director Ellen Roberts.

“We have incredible solar and wind resources here. We should be the envy of the world by producing cheap and abundant renewable hydrogen for export – powering long-term jobs and a future-proof economy.

“The time for trials is over. Queensland can be a world leader by turbocharging renewable hydrogen investment and co-locating hydrogen producers with industry.

“We’re yet to see any announcements in this space from the LNP opposition, which is even more disappointing. A thriving renewable hydrogen industry is a huge opportunity for regional Queensland and we should be getting on the front foot.”
