Northern Territory renewable hydrogen strategy

The Territory has embraced an aspirational target of net-zero emissions by 2050 and hydrogen can play a critical role in achieving this target.

The Territory is positioning itself to be at the forefront of the developing hydrogen industry and aspires to be an international scale renewable hydrogen technology research, production and downstream manufacturing centre.

To achieve this vision the Northern Territory renewable hydrogen strategy has been developed. The strategy articulates the potential hydrogen opportunities and the Territory’s competitive advantages. The Territory will leverage these to be an Australian centre for hydrogen technology research, production and use.

The Territory is well placed to achieve its hydrogen vision:

  • with significant tracts of land with high solar irradiance, the Territory is highly suited to large-scale solar renewable hydrogen developments
  • the Territory’s geographical proximity to Asia, with the closest Australian capital city port to key potential export markets in China, Japan and Korea, the deep sea port at Darwin offers timely delivery and lower transportation costs
  • an established world-scale energy production and export industry underscores the Territory’s credentials as a competitive location for private investment with demonstrated capacity to deliver large-scale energy export projects
  • commitment to facilitating and supporting investment which delivers the Territory’s net-zero emissions vision.
