Hydrogen Energy: Its Role in Australia’s Future Economy

About the Roundtable

Hydrogen and energy have a long-shared history – powering the first internal combustion engines over 200 years ago to becoming an integral part of the modern refining industry. It is light, storable, energy-dense, and produces no direct emissions of pollutants or greenhouse gases. But for hydrogen to make a significant contribution to clean energy transitions, it needs to be adopted in sectors where it is almost completely absent, such as transport, buildings and power generation.

To capitalise on the development of Australia’s hydrogen capabilities, a fund of $300M was created by the Clean Energy Finance Corporation in May of this year. The CSIRO has called Australia’s hydrogen capabilities as a potential “game changer” for the local industry and the broader energy sector due to associated increases in scale throughout the nation.

To discuss the steps necessary to move toward an economically sustainable hydrogen sector, the ADC Forum conducted a members-only discussion panel in collaboration with the ANU Public Policy and Societal Hub. This panel was led by a range of experts from CSIRO, ANU, and the Australian government.
