Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull will address Tasmania's Liberal Party council meeting.
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has trumpeted Tasmania's ability to lead the nation in renewable energy at the state's Liberal Party council meeting.
Mr Turnbull on Saturday addressed 250 delegates at the annual conference in Launceston, the party's final gathering before a state election in March.
He praised Liberal Premier Will Hodgman's economic management in a speech that touched on energy, terrorism and mental health.
"You have here the best wind resources in the nation and the biggest hydro scheme in the nation," he said, alluding to a study into increasing the Apple Isle's hydro electricity production, due to be completed by the end of the year.
"Tasmania can play a massive role in the electricity market across the nation.
"You can see a future for great connectivity as part of a national network."
The state government recently announced a $600 million investment in wind energy on the west coast of Tasmania and the central highlands.
With a Tasmanian election looming, Mr Turnbull put the boot into state and federal Labor, imploring voters to retain the first-term Hodgman government.
"The track record of Labor incompetence is something you can't have inflicted on the state," he said before receiving a standing ovation from the party faithful.
Recent polling shows the gap between the Liberals and Labor in Tasmania is the closest it's been in seven years, with opposition leader Rebecca White the state's preferred premier.
Mr Hodgman will address the state council on Sunday, when he will detail a 43-point plan for re-election.
