Welcome to Hydro Tasmania's new education outreach program, Generation Hydro. 

We provide a variety of ways for students, teachers and parents to access and learn about our history; how hydropower is generated in Tasmania; how we manage native flora and fauna in and around our lakes and rivers and what renewable energy options are used in Tasmania.

Important notice

In line with recommended isolation requirements in response to COVID-19 and until further notice, our education program, Generation Hydro has ceased providing Class Talks and Power Station Tours. This will also extend to any career or science events held at schools or off campus.


If teachers or parents are seeking materials or support for learning about renewable energy, we are happy to provide the following:

  • Lesson plans are available for download here.
  • Additional resources and information can be found here.
  • Activity books and associated worksheets can be sent to your school or home.
  • 'Ask an expert' sessions over Skype where we can provide access to an engineer, scientist, electrician, operator or hydrologist are available for schools. Request a session here.
