Invest Wollongong was pleased to be involved in the recent Illawarra Clean Energy Expo at Australian Parliament House.
Hosted by Member for Cunningham Alison Byrnes MP, and coordinated by the University of Wollongong, the Expo, held on Monday 20 March 2023, brought together the organisations, businesses and people driving the momentum in clean energy in our region with government stakeholders.
Some of the factors driving the case for Wollongong as a premier location for the clean energy industry include:
- Our region’s existing and extensive industrial, transport and energy infrastructure
- The identification of Port Kembla Hydrogen Hub and the Illawarra Renewable Energy Zone by NSW Government
- Our city’s university, the University of Wollongong, and its record of research and development projects with business and industry
The opportunity for our region’s economy in this sector is significant. Invest Wollongong looks forward to proactively and progressively promoting the development of the clean energy sector in, and around, our city.
See our clean energy page for more information about the the development of the industry in Wollongong.
