Hydrogen is a fuel source with the potential to replace or augment fossil fuels.
Australia could play a global role in this market because of our abundant energy resources and proximity to key markets.
The COAG Energy Council established the Hydrogen Working Group to develop a national hydrogen strategy to:
- build a hydrogen industry
- position Australia’s hydrogen industry as a major global player by 2030
To inform the strategy, consultation will take place during 2019. See National Hydrogen Strategy - request for input to comment on the future of hydrogen in Australia.
For more information on the scope of the strategy, see Australia's National Hydrogen Strategy.
