We have an early advantage to decarbonise the economy and participate in the global energy transition.
The state has a $20 billion pipeline of investment for on and off-grid renewables and storage, including the the SA Hydrogen Jobs Plan – a significant green hydrogen project and the first example of government resuming public ownership of power infrastructure.
South Australia is well positioned to become a world class, low-cost green hydrogen supplier, and establish a future competitive advantage in low-carbon energy intensive manufacturing in sectors such as iron, copper, cement, critical minerals, and fuels.
The national and international shift towards net-zero has increased demand for innovative low-carbon technologies, infrastructure, and recycled materials.
Significant renewable energy and green hydrogen projects for South Australia are unlocking a pipeline of renewable energy developments and manufacturing opportunities.
A directory of South Australian businesses with the interest and capability to contribute to the emerging hydrogen supply chain was compiled by the Industry Capability Network SA (ICN SA) in mid-2023.
South Australia’s Hydrogen Industry Supplier Directory was compiled through a formal expression of interest process, with more than 260 businesses outlining their ability to contribute to the production, storage, transport and distribution of renewable energy and hydrogen, as well as downstream applications such as the manufacture of green iron.
The State Government has committed $593 million to building a world leading green hydrogen power station in the SA Hydrogen Jobs Plan. By December 2025, the construction will be completed including the hydrogen power station, electrolyser, and storage facility located in Whyalla.
The project includes 250MWe of electrolysers, 200MW of power generation and hydrogen storage.
The recently commissioned Port Augusta Renewable Energy Park (PAREP)
is a combined wind and solar photovoltaic (PV) hybrid project, designed to provide predictable power more uniformly across the day.
The Port Bonython Hydrogen Hub will be South Australia’s first large-scale export terminal for green hydrogen.
The Eyre Peninsula Gateway Project is the first in a pipeline of several green hydrogen and green ammonia projects being developed by H2U and will be built in two stages.
This is the first in a pipeline of several green hydrogen and green ammonia projects being developed by H2U and will be built in two stages.
This stage will include a 100 MW electrolysis plant to produce up to 15,000 tonnes per year of green hydrogen, and up to 40,000 tonnes per year of green ammonia.
This stage will see an additional 1.5 GW of electrolysis capacity, and 2,400 tonnes per day ammonia being established in the Port Bonython precinct, targeting commissioning by 2030.
