With a signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), the duo has said they will support cooperation on green hydrogen development.

Few details of the deal have been released, however, Guy Barnett, Minister for Energy and Emissions Reduction, has said the MoU extends beyond just exporting and importing hydrogen.

Co-operation between the two regions have already begun, with research institutions from both sides meeting to identify areas for practical collaboration and share knowledge to ensure the local energy benefits in the best possible way.

It is hoped the deal will help Tasmania become a significant green hydrogen exporter from 2030 and support Flanders’ decarbonisation agenda.
