26 May, 2021

Ten partners launch a $68M Hydrogen Industry Mission to drive down the cost of hydrogen production to $2 per kilogram.

Over the next five years, more than 100 projects worth $68M have been planned by partners including: Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources (DISER), Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) , Fortescue Metals Group, Swinburne University, the Victorian Government, the Future Fuels CRC, National Energy Resources Australia (NERA), and the Australian Hydrogen Council, along with collaborators Toyota and Hyundai.

“Australia can become a renewable energy leader through production, use and export of hydrogen, but it will only become a reality if we break the $2/kg barrier that needs Australia’s world class science working with CSIRO’s commercialisation expertise turning breakthrough science into real-world solutions,” CSIRO Chief Executive Dr Larry Marshall said.
