The South Australian Government will assess the feasibility of exporting locally produced green hydrogen to Rotterdam, Netherlands.
The state government has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Port of Rotterdam which currently imports large quantities of oil and coal but is looking to become a major hydrogen import hub.
SA Minister for Energy and Mining Dan van Holst Pellekaan said the government was continuing to build on its vision to becoming a world-class renewable hydrogen supplier.
“The SA Government intends to become a national and international exporter of clean power, through new power interconnectors and carriers such as hydrogen,” he said.
“These could lead to SA producing around 500 per cent of its current grid demand in renewable energy by 2050.”
SA has so far committed around $15 million to support green hydrogen production projects throughout the state.
