The McGowan Government today said it is allocating $1.68m to fund seven renewable hydrogen feasibility studies across Western Australia.
The projects being invested in have the potential to kick start a job-creating renewable hydrogen industry, the government said.
The studies, funded through the McGowan Government’s Renewable Hydrogen Fund, include examining creating solar hydrogen for waste collection and light vehicle fleets in Cockburn, a hydrogen refuelling hub in Mandurah and the potential for an electrolysis hydrogen production plant in the Great Southern or Wheatbelt.
Other proposals include a standalone power system for an indigenous community in the Pilbara using 100% renewable energy; a hydrogen production facility near Kununurra using existing hydro generation; examining the compatibility of the Dampier to Bunbury natural gas transmission pipeline with blended hydrogen and looking at the integration of renewable hydrogen with isolated power stations.
