Renewable hydrogen

Energy, to takeaway.

At Origin, we’re exploring ways to work towards clean energy. We’ll be conducting a $3.2 million feasibility study into building an export scale renewable energy plant in Tasmania’s Bell Bay.

Here’s some things to know:

  • Under the current proposal, the 500+ megawatt plant would produce more than 420,000 tonnes of ammonia per year.
  • Ammonia is a carrier for hydrogen, whose potential uses include electricity generation and fuel.
  • Some of the ammonia produced will be made available domestically to support Tasmania’s decarbonisation ambitions.

By exploring this renewable energy plant, we’re not only seeking to create cleaner energy for our customers, but helping to play a part in creating wider change.
