As we shift to renewable energy sources, South Australia is looking to position itself as the global producer and supplier of green hydrogen.
Three quarters of a billion dollars is being invested by the State Government to accelerate new hydrogen projects and shipping infrastructure to position the state as a global clean energy leader.
The Hydrogen Jobs Plan will see the construction of a world-leading green hydrogen power station, electrolyser and storage facility near Whyalla in the Upper Spencer Gulf. The construction and operation of this plant will create many jobs for South Australians.
For those looking to secure an opportunity within the South Australian hydrogen energy sector, TAFE SA is now offering a bite-sized micro-credential course in Hydrogen Fundamentals.
Developed in collaboration with the Australian Gas Infrastructure Group (AGIG) the course provides individuals and businesses with an understanding of the opportunities and challenges with hydrogen, the safety aspects of hydrogen, and the job opportunities in this emerging sector.
