[Speaker]: You may be hearing a lot about renewable hydrogen, but do you know what it is?

Renewable hydrogen is produced when renewable electricity generated from the sun, wind, or water powers an electrolyzer to convert water into hydrogen gas.

Odorless, lightweight, and zero carbon, renewable hydrogen can be stored, transported, and used when it's needed.

Hydrogen is the most abundant chemical substance in the universe, and since its discovery as an element in the late 1700s has had a long history as an energy source.

In the 1800s, the process for electrolysis was invented, allowing hydrogen to be formed by passing electricity through water.

Since these early beginnings, hydrogen has been used in different ways to power a range of cars, aircraft, submarines, and even spacecraft and rockets.

Today, renewable hydrogen offers enormous potential as a clean, safe, and reliable fuel source.

By harnessing our abundant renewable energy, hydrogen production is not only clean, but becoming more affordable.

That's why Victorian produced renewable hydrogen presents a remarkable opportunity to sustainably power sectors, such as transport, agriculture, and manufacturing, while creating jobs across our state and ensuring protection from unstable global markets.
