100 years of renewable energy

Since our first hydropower development almost a century ago, Hydro Tasmania has been a leader in its field.

Owned by the Government of Tasmania we currently employ over 1100 people locally, nationally and overseas with assets worth more than $5 billion.

We have grown to become Australia’s largest producer of renewable energy and the nation’s largest water manager.

We use a combination of water and wind to harness natural energy that powers Tasmanian households and businesses and is also sold into the Australian national grid.

We also:

  • Trade electricity and energy-related environmental products (such as Renewable Energy Certificates) in the Australian market.
  • Own and operate an advance hybrid power system on King Island, off the north-west coast of Tasmania. This uses wind, solar, diesel and innovative energy-enabling technologies to maximise renewable energy use.

Hydro Tasmania also owns a professional consulting business, Entura, as well as Momentum Energy, our electricity retailer that operates in many states of Australia.
