The Victorian Hydrogen Hub is working closely with businesses to assist their energy transformation towards a hydrogen economy, helping them “get ready” to discover and leverage new opportunities in the renewables and hydrogen markets.
We are engaging with some of Australia’s leading companies to explore new business models, seek community insights into the applications of hydrogen, investigate the regulatory and safety requirements, identify the training needs of the future workforce and develop new technologies, products and services that will create jobs and strengthen local industry.
We are also creating a Technology Demonstration Centre and Demonstration Hydrogen Refuelling Station - with both hydrogen production and storage facilities. Development and testing of storage and transport systems for hydrogen is a key activity for the Hub, these demonstration facilities will be used to expand the understanding of hydrogen as a fuel for industry and business, as well as the community more widely.
Current projects include:
- Digital processes in hydrogen production as well as traceability and certification of hydrogen
- Fuel cell technology for hydrogen powered commercial vehicles
- Economic modelling for hydrogen infrastructure assessments
- Decarbonisation of ports and steel plants.
