Energising Tasmania will invest over $16 million over four years from 2019-20 to train a skilled workforce needed for the energy sector and to support the Battery of the Nation initiative.
Energising Tasmania will make it attractive for Tasmanians to access vocational education and training to meet energy sector skills needs through nationally recognised training. The Australian and Tasmanian Governments are working together to determine priority skills needs and eligibility.
Fee-free training in priority skills areas will equip Tasmania’s workforce with the expertise needed to build and maintain pumped hydroelectricity, and the electrical and engineering skills to build the interconnection infrastructure with the National Electricity Market.
The initiative is managed through a National Partnership Project Agreement. An agreed annual Implementation Plan outlines key activities and milestones for the delivery of agreed outputs. Copies can be found on the Council of Federal Financial Relations website.
Further information on the activities being delivered by the Tasmanian Government can be found on the Skills Tasmania Energising Tasmania website.
