Clean energy future
Tasmania is setting world-leading targets and helping businesses and residents to take advantage of our clean energy.
- 100% renewable energy target by 2022 – on track to meet ahead of schedule (over 95% in 2019)
- 200% renewable energy target by 2040 – doubling our renewable energy production and exporting as much as we consume
- Zero net emissions by 2050 – under review
- Support for Tasmania’s hydrogen industry: $50m in funding, concessional loans, subsidised power and tax breaks for green hydrogen development over the next decade
- Support for electric vehicles: 14 fast charging stations at 12 locations to be installed this year
- The next state budget will include commencing the transition of the state government vehicle fleet to low emission.
Businesses that are seeking to reduce their net emissions have a big head start when choosing to settle in Tasmania – they can plug straight into the state’s grid.
The same goes for reducing emissions from transport by transitioning from petrol or diesel to electric vehicles. And importantly, Tasmania already has surprise-free, reliable, dispatchable capacity.
