Australia’s green hydrogen plans to drive solar growth

Solar PV could account for a fifth of power generation by 2030, says Wood Mackenzie

Australia’s potential as a producer of green hydrogen could help drive a rapid expansion of its solar photovoltaic (PV)  generation capacity this decade, according to consultancy Wood Mackenzie. Australia can expect 23GW of solar PV capacity additions this decade, according to analysis by the firm. “The country’s state level renewables target and green hydrogen potential could drive its solar PV penetration in power generation to over 20pc by 2030, making it the highest in the region,” Wood Mackenzie says. 23GW – Australia expects solar PV additions by 2030 Australia is keen to position itself as a big hydrogen exporter to Asian countries, especially Japan and South Korea.
