    Tasmanian Government Collaborates with Bremen on Green Hydrogen Development

    The Tasmanian Government of Australia has entered into a Joint Declaration of Intent (JDI) with the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen, Germany, to cooperate on the development of green hydrogen. This collaboration aims to foster research, innovation, and development in the hydrogen and wind energy industries. Other key areas of focus include business development, remote applications, climate change adaptation, and exploring hydrogen export and import opportunities.

    The Tasmanian Renewable Hydrogen Action Plan envisions Tasmania becoming a leader in large-scale green hydrogen production by 2030, catering to both domestic and export markets. By partnering with international organizations like Bremen, Tasmania aims to establish global supply chains that will benefit its economy, skills development, and hydrogen technologies.

    The Tasmanian government believes that its renewable energy resources, such as its 100% renewable electricity and abundant water supplies, coupled with excellent port infrastructure, make it well-positioned to seize the opportunities offered by green hydrogen development. This collaboration with Bremen, whose hydrogen agenda aligns with Tasmania’s green hydrogen vision, will facilitate the exchange of knowledge and experiences in research, innovation, and development.

    Kristina Vogt, Bremen’s senator for economic affairs, ports, and transformation, emphasized the need for global collaboration to achieve a green energy transition. The partnership between Tasmania and Bremen is seen as a significant step towards the positive development of the hydrogen economy, particularly in northern Germany.

    This JDI with Bremen follows similar agreements signed with the region of Flanders, Belgium in 2022 and the Port of Rotterdam in 2021, further highlighting Tasmania’s commitment to international collaboration in the green hydrogen sector.
