NSW looks to ‘cheap’ renewable energy to boost economy
The New South Wales government is looking towards large scale hydrogen production to create thousands of jobs.
Under the proposal, Newcastle and Port Kembla would be used as hubs and the investment could contribute a $26 billion economic boost.
If we are going to borrow from our kids to get out of this recession, we need to make sure they will benefit from our investments, not just pay the interest on our debt. We need to invest now in hydrogen, green chemicals,and renewable energy zones https://t.co/SQCksChBDb
