Renewable Fuel Scheme

Public consultation

Help us shape the Renewable Fuel Scheme

The Renewable Fuel Scheme (RFS) encourages the production of green hydrogen in NSW.

Our aim is to support industry to grow new supply chains to improve the affordability, reliability and sustainability of green hydrogen in NSW. This will also help our industries remain competitive as international markets decarbonise and become global leaders in green hydrogen production. 

We are currently preparing the first rule for the RFS. It sets out the calculation methods and eligibility requirements to create certificates for green hydrogen production. 

Consultation is now open for the Renewable Fuel Scheme Rule 

We are seeking your feedback on a series of proposals in the consultation paper about the draft RFS Rule. 

Learn more about our proposals by reading these documents:  

Email your written submission as a PDF file by 5:00 pm Australian Eastern Daylight Time on 2 February 2024 to [email protected]. 

Stay up to date

After the consultation period, stakeholder feedback will be analysed and inform the final RFS Rule, which is expected to be published in Q2 2024.

This is one of many opportunities to get involved with the scheme. We look forward to collaborating with industry through targeted research, stakeholder engagement and public consultation. We will provide regular updates about these activities on our website and via email.
