Embed net zero considerations as part of decision making across the cluster

Embed net zero considerations as part of decision making across the cluster

Low emissions technologies are becoming commercially viable and new emerging technologies will potentially rapidly decrease in cost during our journey to net zero emissions.

Hydrogen may be an example of such a technology. Hydrogen can be produced from water and renewable electricity with little or no emissions. It can be used as a replacement for gas or diesel in many cases, and can be stored and transported. Research indicates fuel costs for hydrogen fuel cell vehicles are likely to fall as supply scales up. Hydrogen has the potential to transform the freight sector, with hydrogen fuel cell trucks providing zero emission freight.

In an environment of rapid change, we need to continually review our way of doing things to move early and leverage emerging opportunities to achieve net zero in ways that improve the State’s prosperity.

Transport for NSW will work to embed net zero considerations into decision making so we can identify and take advantage of the rapid technological change in low emission energy.

Six principles for Future Transport

The Future Transport 2056 Strategy is focused on six key principles for the future of mobility in the state, which together aim to positively impact the economy, communities and environment of NSW.
