WA green hydrogen project targets 2024 production after solar farm deal done

Australian renewable hydrogen company Infinite Green Energy is targeting first commercial-scale production of green hydrogen by the end of 2024 after finalising the $8 million (USD 5.65 million) acquisition of an 11 MW solar farm in Western Australia and penning its first offtake agreement for the project.

Hydrogen skills study underway at Kogan Creek

A new study is underway in Queensland’s Darling Downs region to determine the skills needed by the local hydrogen industry workforce, delivering on the $4 million dollar commitment toward supporting energy skills including for hydrogen, electric, vehicles, and renewable energy which was announced at the Queensland Workforce Summit

World’s largest hydrogen airplane makes first flight

The hydrogen stream: ZeroAvia tested its new 19-seat hydrogen-powered aircraft, Chinese scientists unveiled new tech to promote bubble removal in electrolysers, and Egypt-Japan University of Science and Technology researchers claimed that the most efficient hydrogen production systems are based on waste heat.

Japanese oil giant opens green hydrogen pilot plant in Brisbane

Japan’s largest oil company, Eneos, has opened a green hydrogen demonstration plant at Bulwer Island in Brisbane. While the scale of the project is relatively small, producing just 20 kilograms of green hydrogen a day, Eneos Senior Vice President Yuichiro Fujiyama says the company will expand the project’s scale “in near future.”

Systems injecting hydrogen into diesel engines manufactured in Victoria

A Victorian-based startup which claims to have developed a hydrogen enhancement kit that injects hydrogen into existing diesel engines to reduce diesel use, has begun the production of 10 commercial-ready systems. It will do field testing with the systems on sites of potential customers.

Green hydrogen straight from the ocean: Adelaide researchers crack new method

Researchers from the University of Adelaide, along with international partners, have successfully used seawater with no pre-treatment to produce green hydrogen. The team did this by introducing an acid layer over the catalysts in situ. “We have split natural seawater into oxygen and hydrogen with nearly 100% efficiency… using a non-precious and cheap catalyst in a commercial electrolyser,” University of Adelaide’s Professor Shizhang Qiao said.

Australia and Germany tip $100 million into green hydrogen projects

An Australian cleantech company that claims its technology could enable hydrogen production of below $1.50 per kilogram by the middle of the decade is one of four green fuel projects to share in more than $100 million (USD 78 million) funding awarded as part of a collaboration between the Australian and German governments.

Educational events for engineers upskilling for hydrogen industry begin in Victoria

An educational event series aimed at upskilling engineers to enter the hydrogen industry is launching in February in Melbourne. The Hydrogen Industry Technical Series 2023 is being organised by the Victorian divisions of the Australian Institute of Energy and Engineers Australia.

Albo tips Queensland hydrogen hub to help unlock $50 billion

The Australian government has unveiled a $70 million (USD 49 million) investment to aid the development of a green hydrogen hub in the north Queensland city of Townsville as it looks unlock the benefits of an industry which it says could inject an additional $50 billion (USD 35 billion) into the economy by 2050.
