Aussie hydrogen firms to compete for $2 billion boost
West Australian, Other, 10/10/2023, Jennifer Dudley-Nicholson
Australian hydrogen producers have one month to claim a share of $2 billion from the federal government in a program designed to ensure the country leads the world in the renewable energy source by 2030. The Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) opened applications for its Hydrogen Headstart program on Tuesday, in what its chief executive called the government’s “largest investment in renewable hydrogen to date”. […] The funding is in addition to more than $308 million invested in renewable hydrogen projects since 2017, and follows a CSIRO study that recommended Australia ramp up its hydrogen production to remain competitive with countries like Germany, Japan, South Korea and China.
