Backing for Tasmania’s energy future
As Tasmania powers ahead with its renewable energy ambitions, the projects are receiving strong support from all levels of government. Significant levels of government investment to advance the projects demonstrates the high level of confidence in supporting Tasmania’s future energy potential.
The table below details this support.
Hydro Tasmania and TasNetworks continue to work closely with the Tasmanian and Federal Governments to progress the opportunities. The Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) has supported the Battery of the Nation and Marinus Link projects with funding through its Advancing Renewables Program.
The Federal Government also announced the “Energising Tasmania” initiative. This will see the delivery of fee-free training and support for fee costs, supporting Tasmania to develop a skilled workforce equipped with the expertise needed for the pipeline of renewable energy projects under investigation and in development.
Support will also be provided for industry engagement, workforce planning and development, and building training provider capacity.
