Have your say on Australia's Hydrogen Strategy

NEWS ITEM POST DATE: 
1 March, 2019

Hydrogen is a clean fuel that can replace or augment natural gas, coal and oil. Momentum is building worldwide for the development of a global hydrogen market. Australia could play a leading role in this market because of our abundant energy resources and proximity to key emerging markets . The COAG Energy Council established the Hydrogen Working Group to develop a national hydrogen strategy to:

  • build a clean, innovative and competitive hydrogen industry
  • position Australia's hydrogen industry as a major global player by 2030

To inform the strategy, consultation will take place across Australia during 2019. Visit National Hydrogen Strategy - request for input to comment on the future of hydrogen in Australia.
