Minister for Climate Change and Energy
“Australia is pleased to support MI 2.0 as a valuable platform to drive down the cost of low emissions technologies The Australian Government will invest $20 billion to achieve ambitious goals that will bring the cost of clean hydrogen, green steel, energy storage and carbon capture to commercial parity. We expect this to leverage more than $80 billion in total public and private investment by 2030.”
