South Australia’s Hydrogen Jobs plan will be the centrepiece of a renewable energy roundtable – aimed at generating international investment in the State’s green energy industry – in Singapore today.
The Hydrogen and Renewable Energy Roundtable, part of South Australian Trade and Investment Minister Nick Champion’s mission to Singapore, will highlight South Australia’s world-leading hydrogen and renewable energy initiatives.
Hosted by Minister Champion, the event’s attendees include major listed equity, venture and renewable energy companies worth billions of dollars seeking exposure to opportunities in the State.
In December last year, the State Government launched its international Request for Proposals (RFP) seeking industry partners to help deliver its Hydrogen Jobs Plan – comprising a hydrogen power plant, hydrogen production and storage facilities.
RFPs for the major project close at 5pm local time tomorrow, making it the final chance for companies to put in their bids.
Singapore’s new national hydrogen strategy to achieve net zero emissions by mid-century makes the country a key market for South Australia’s future hydrogen exports.
The Malinauskas Government’s Hydrogen Jobs Plan will include the construction of world-leading hydrogen facilities, including 250MWe of electrolysers, a 200MW power station and hydrogen storage infrastructure.
South Australia is a global leader in renewable energy, with more than $7 billion invested in renewable energy projects and a further $20 billion in the pipeline.
More than 70 per cent of South Australia’s electricity requirements are met by renewable energy; by 2030, the State is expected to be a net 100 per cent renewable energy generator.

We already have runs on the board as a global leader in renewable energy, and now we are gaining momentum as a world leader in green hydrogen.
South Australia’s unique mixture of high-quality wind speeds and solar radiation make us a word-class, low-cost green hydrogen supplier, with exports set to be highly sought after.
The Singaporean Government, industry and investors are monitoring our State’s progress in this area with great interest – and they are eager for opportunities to invest and collaborate on technology solutions.
