Led by Swinburne University of Technology, working in partnership with CSIRO and Germany’s ARENA 2036, the Victorian Hydrogen Hub will bring together researchers, industry partners and business. Testing, trialling and demonstrating new and emerging hydrogen technologies, the Victorian Hydrogen Hub will support sustainable manufacturing practices and the ability to store clean energy from renewable sources, striving to create a sustainable future for all.

Building on our international connections and strengths in design, digitalisation, and Industry 4.0, we are supporting sustainable manufacturing practices and the ability to store clean energy from renewable sources. Hydrogen, employing renewable technologies, is rapidly emerging as a clean fuel and industrial feedstock for the future, we are furthering research and development in the hydrogen sector by testing, trialling and demonstrating new and emerging hydrogen technologies, striving to create a sustainable future for all.

Victorian Hydrogen Hub

Demonstration Centres

Our Technology Demonstration Centre and Demonstration Hydrogen Refuelling Station will showcase both hydrogen production and storage facilities to expand the understanding of hydrogen as a fuel for industry and business, as well as the community more widely.

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.
Are you interested in the fuel of the future and want to be part of the solution?

Join our team. Recruitment for professional roles, post-doctoral positions and PhD scholarships will be advertised on our careers page.
