Austrade: Australia is well placed to be a major hydrogen producer

To support a future where all our energy comes from clean sources, the world needs clean, flexible, storable and safe fuels. Hydrogen has all of these characteristics. When used as a fuel, it produces no carbon emissions, only water. It can be safely used in a broad range of applications.

Australia is well placed to make hydrogen its next big export. It has all the natural resources needed to produce it, a track record in building large-scale energy industries and a reputation as a proven partner in Asia’s biggest energy importers.

An Australian hydrogen industry could generate thousands of jobs, many of them in regional areas, and it could add billions of dollars to GDP over coming decades. Managed well, it could help Australia to reliably integrate extensive renewable generation into the electricity grid.
