ARENA today announced it has received 36 expressions of interest (EOI) for a $70m funding round that opened in April to help fast track the development of renewable hydrogen in Australia.

Collectively the 36 applications received have more than 500MW of electrolysis capacity, with the size of projects ranging from 5MW to nearly 80MW.
