Hydrogen Transition Centre to be built at Australian University

Plans have been announced for Australia’s first Hydrogen Transition Centre, which will be located at Deakin University’s Warrnambool campus.

Funded by a $2m grant from the Federal Government and lead by Deakin University, along with vehicle manufacturer Kenworth, and the City of Warrnambool, the new centre will focus on the transportation sector, testing how fuel cells can work alongside electric vehicle technologies.

“The centre will partner with industry to apply Deakin University’s world-leading capabilities to solve one of our toughest transport issues: how to fuel the world’s trucking industries in a low carbon future,” said Professor Iain Martin, Deakin University’s Vice-Chancellor.

“The Federal Government investment will see our researchers partner with Australia’s leading trucking manufacture, Kenworth, as well as with industry leaders in hydrogen fuel cells, electric vehicles and gas distribution.”
