Generation Hydro

Hydro Tasmania is developing a brand new education program called Generation Hydro for primary and high school students. We want to help students and teachers learn about the value of renewable energy.

For more than a century, Tasmanians have relied on our hydropower to grow and support the state’s communities and economy.

Hydro Tasmania has led clean energy innovation in Australia - building 55 major dams, 30 hydropower stations and two major wind farms.We employ more than 1,100 people, mostly in Tasmania.

We want to bring this story to life for primary and high school students across Tasmania through lesson plans, activity based incursions, power station tours, fun competitions, projects and digital games. We can’t wait to share Generation Hydro with you.
