Current and proposed hydrogen projects

Explore the current hydrogen projects on the agenda. Since the release of the National Hydrogen Strategy in 2019, investment in the Australian hydrogen industry has significantly increased. By the end …

Welcome to Week 2

Welcome to Week 2 of The Role of Hydrogen in the Clean Energy Transition. This week will we look at the hydrogen supply chain and the steps involved to produce …

Overview of the hydrogen supply chain

The production, storage and distribution of hydrogen make up the supply chain. There are a range of pathways in which hydrogen can be produced, stored and distributed to the end …

Production

There are several ways to produce hydrogen. These include from natural gas, coal, biomass and water. However, nearly all of the hydrogen currently produced comes from fossil fuels with high …

Storage and distribution

There are a number of storage and transportation options for hydrogen. Once produced hydrogen needs to be stored, used or distributed. When hydrogen is a gas, it is not very …

Current applications

Hydrogen is important in industry. In 2021, the global hydrogen demand was nearly 94 million tonnes (Mt), mostly for use in traditional applications in refining and industry sectors1. This figure …

Future hydrogen use

Let’s look ahead to future hydrogen usage. The way in which hydrogen and hydrogen-based fuels are used in the future will evolve if the world is to achieve net‐zero emissions …

Industry perspectives

Let’s listen to Kevin and Fiona talk about their perspectives of the hydrogen supply chain. They will discuss production methods, the colours of hydrogen and how the well-established role of …

Case study – Heavy duty transport

Let’s look at the hydrogen bus supply chain in transport. In this video we will hear from Neil and Ross from Foton Australia who discuss their role in the electrification …

The commercial cost of hydrogen

Hydrogen production and distribution can be expensive, particularly when produced from renewable sources. To become a more competitive energy source, and to accelerate the clean energy transition, low-carbon hydrogen needs …

Lack of high-quality water

Water usage is a significant challenge for hydrogen production. The production of green hydrogen requires large amounts of high-quality water, however the long-term access to water can pose a significant …

Safety and social licensing

Safety is a prominent challenge around the use of hydrogen. Hydrogen is a highly flammable gas and like any fuel source, requires careful handling and storage. Ensuring the safety of …

Hear from the industry experts

We asked some experts… ‘what do you think the biggest challenge is?’ Hear from Fiona Simon from the Australian Hydrogen Council, Rob Nyhuis from Swagelok, Kevin Peakman a Hydrogen specialist …

Establish hydrogen hubs

Australia’s on a mission to establish hydrogen hubs. A hydrogen hub, or cluster, is defined as a network of hydrogen producers (sometimes including renewable power generation), potential users, and the …

How to change for future benefit?

Let’s look at nearer-term opportunities and linked Australian projects. To support the widespread adoption of hydrogen over the next decade, four near-term opportunities have been identified. These opportunities are mutually …
