Green hydrogen offers a potential solution to issue of future energy security and sustainability, but storage and cost-effective production require innovation.
Areas of focus
- Hydrogen production (from water and biomass)
- Hydrogen storage (including solid state, underground, thermal batteries, fuel cells and more)
- Hydrogen transportation, safety and sensing
- Hydrogen economy and policy
- Using green hydrogen for transport, households and building
Impact and outcomes
- Advancement of sustainable methods to produce hydrogen from renewable abundant natural sources including water and biomass
- Development of sustainable and cost-effective green hydrogen power solutions for transport and construction industries
- Trial of hydrogen-fuelled trucks on Wester Australian highways to assess the potential for renewable hydrogen for heavy haul road freight
