Hydrogen Hub
at Port Bonython

The Marshall Liberal Government is leveraging billions in private investment from global energy companies to deliver a hydrogen hub at Port Bonython.

What we'll do

A re-elected Marshall Liberal Government will invest $67 million of support to attract billions more in private investment to establish a Hydrogen Hub at Port Bonython.

This project has the potential to transform South Australia into a renewable energy exporter of world standing in the next decade – creating thousands of jobs and transforming towns across the Upper Spencer Gulf of South Australia – Whyalla, Port Augusta and Port Pirie.

We already have an impressive list of global investors including some of the biggest players in energy and resources in Australia – Santos, Fortescue Future Industries, and Origin Energy – as well as three partners from Japan and AMP Energy from Canada.

Unlike Labor's taxpayer funded hydrogen thought bubble, we are leveraging investment from the federal government and private sector to deliver this important hydrogen hub – rather than expecting the people of South Australia to fund the entire project.

This is part of our plan to save households money on their electricity bills while bringing down emissions and continuing South Australia’s leadership in renewable energy.

What it means for you

  • SA to become a renewable energy exporter of world standing
  • More local jobs in new and growing industries
  • Electricity is becoming more reliable, cheaper AND greener
