Federal election 2022: Scott Morrison to announce $50 million green energy pitch

Prime Minister Scott Morrison will on Wednesday pledge to inject $50 million into research of green industries and create 1600 jobs if re-elected.

The pledge would help create a new partnership with the University of New South Wales and University of Newcastle, alongside 27 industry partners, to accelerate technology development in the sector while creating jobs.

Technology solutions in solar, hydrogen, storage and green metals will be the focal point of the new partnership.

The funding will be delivered through the same scheme Mr Morrison spruiked during his first Perth trip of the election, where he announced $200m for four new hydrogen hubs and $50m to create more critical mineral supply chain jobs.

In his speech the Liberal Leader will champion Coalition’s economic plan in “supercharging Australia’s research and development” in a hope it will spur a new wave of technology and innovation.
