Woodside Energy invests $40m in hydrogen future

Woodside Energy has invested $40m in a seven-year research partnership with Monash University to explore the possibilities of using hydrogen as a source of energy to support Australia’s low-carbon energy transition.

As part of the partnership, Australia’s largest independent oil and gas company will construct a $16.5m state-of-the-art ‘living laboratory’ in the Monash Technology Precinct which houses Australia’s largest concentration of research institutions and leading engineering companies.
