Hydro Tasmania is Australia’s largest renewable energy generator. It also retails electricity in Victoria through Momentum Energy, and provides consulting services to the energy sector through its consulting arm, Entura. Hydro Tasmania has set a target of being net zero for scope 1 and scope 2 emissions by 2025, and to have quantified its scope 3 emissions by 2025. This is its first step on its journey towards net zero. To meet this target, Hydro Tasmania is undertaking a range of activities including electrifying its fleet, improving its reporting and transparency, procuring offsets, pricing carbon pollution and using renewable energy. Hydro Tasmania is also researching emissions from its reservoirs in collaboration with Dr Alistair Grinham. Adoption of the target has delivered challenges and unexpected benefits for Hydro Tasmania’s businesses.
