Published: 09-Dec-2004

The Tasmanian Government has announced a range of renewable energy projects for remote locations around the state, including the use of cutting-edge hydrogen technology.

Speaking at the launch of the Tasmanian Government’s energy policy, Powering Prosperity, the Minister for Infrastructure, Energy and Resources, Bryan Green, said this week that the most exciting of these was a project to upgrade the power supply on Cape Barren Island.

He said: “The Cape Barren Island proposal is particularly interesting, as it involves the use of hydrogen as an energy storage medium in combination with a new wind turbine.”
