New Energy

New energy industries create energy from renewable sources and alternate forms of energy.

The eventual retirement of fossil fuel energy, will be accompanied by the ongoing growth of renewable energy. This provides an opportunity for Hobsons Bay to lead the way in this sector.

Hobsons Bay has a long history in the refinement, storage and distribution of energy and has the expertise, land use settings and established infrastructure that is needed to support new energy industries.

We have large self-contained sites located away from residential areas that would enable this industry to grow. New energy industries could also power our advanced manufacturing industry.
