The Communications, Electrical Plumbing Union (CEPU) of South Australia commends the South Australian Labor Party’s hydrogen power plan.
The SA Labor Party has committed to building a hydrogen power station, hydrogen storage facility and 250MWe of hydrogen electrolysers, if elected.
This plan will inject thousands of well-paid, secure jobs into the energy industry, from the construction phase through to unlocking renewable energy projects and developing a hydrogen export industry.
It will also attract new businesses to operate and grow jobs in South Australia.
It is the visionary policy that South Australians need to rebuild after the COVID-19 pandemic, and transition to a low-carbon future.
Quotes attributable to CEPU SA State Secretary John Adley:
“This is just really good policy. It is the vision South Australia needs at a time when unemployment is high and there is enormous potential in harnessing renewables.”
“Our state has a high reputation in leading the way on renewable energy projects. This announcement shows the rest of Australia the way forward in energy policy that supports workers, consumers and the environment simultaneously.”
“The Labor Party is showing us a concrete plan for the future of our energy industry, something that the current SA State Liberal Government is sorely lacking.”
