Tasmania is among the top 5 places in the world for renewable energy.
The minerals and manufacturing sectors care where our energy comes from.
Powering a lower carbon footprint.
Wind turbines do not release emissions that can pollute the air or water (with rare exceptions), and they do not require water for cooling. Wind turbines may also reduce the amount of electricity generation from fossil fuels, which results in lower total air pollution and carbon dioxide emissions.
Taking the ‘potential’ and ‘kinetic’ energy in water to turn it in to electricity through the use of dams in natural waterways. By releasing water from the dam it passes through a turbine to create the energy through a generator. Tasmania produces about 9000 gigawatt hours of clean electricity from hydropower – enough to power about 900,000 Australian homes and small businesses.
Green hydrogen is hydrogen that is produced using renewable energy through electrolysis. … If the electricity needed for electrolysis is generated from renewable sources such as solar or wind, the production of hydrogen in this way emits no greenhouse gasses. It can be used for transport and
Green hydrogen projects are being planned in Tasmania. The fuel can be used for electric cars and trucks, container ships and even steel refineries by replacing gas and coal.
Hydro goes greener
Tasmania is the largest provider of renewable energy in Australia. But as energy needs continue to grow so does our smarter thinking. How can we achieve more with less impact? Pumped Hydro is one possibility.
Concerned with the rising numbers of wombats suffering from sarcoptic mange at Musselroe Wind Farm, Hydro are helping the University of Tasmania to conduct important field research to treat and protect wombats from reinfection.
