Australian National University awarded $1.5m towards hydrogen economy research

The Australian National University (ANU) is set to benefit from a 20-year investment worth $1.5m towards research on the hydrogen economy.

The $75,000 annual funding from Global Power Generation Australia (GPGA) to the ANU Energy Change Institute will support a scholarship for a master’s student to undertake research on hydrogen each year ($25,000) and support research and education on the hydrogen economy annually ($50,000).

“Hydrogen has the potential to be the ‘missing link’ between renewable energy, like solar and wind, and industries that have yet to find a viable alternative to fossil fuels,” Director of the ANU Energy Change Institute Professor Ken Baldwin said.
