Studies show Dampier Bunbury Pipeline capable of 9% hydrogen blending, but underground storage less promising

Two Western Australian government funded studies into the transmission and storage of hydrogen have shown that the state’s main gas pipeline is, for large sections, ready for 9% hydrogen blending. However, in less promising news, another study found that the state’s underground storage capacity, including depleted oil and gas fields, are not proximate to the proposed 50GW Western Green Energy Hub or the 23GW Asian Renewable Energy Hub.

Victorian government doles out over $7 million toward green hydrogen applications in heavy transport

Transport accounts for approximately 20% of the Victoria’s emissions while also being one of the more hard to decarbonise sectors. Due to its commitment to halve its emissions by 2030, the Victorian government has announced over $7 million in grands for a number of projects seeking to commercialise real world applications in the transport sector powered by renewable hydrogen.

Green hydrogen could disrupt global trade, bilateral energy relations

While there are still many uncertainties as to the way in which hydrogen trade might evolve and change economic ties and political dynamics between countries, experts agree that green hydrogen can bring winds of change to the global energy arena. According to the International Renewable Energy Agency, significant geoeconomic and geopolitical shifts are just around the corner.

GEV launches development strategy for proposed 2.8 GW green hydrogen project

Western Australian renewables company Global Energy Ventures is steaming ahead with its plan to establish a massive 2.8 GW green hydrogen production and export facility on the Tiwi Islands off the coast of the Northern Territory, announcing it has already commenced the development program.

Sojitz teams with CS Energy in green hydrogen export project

Japanese trading house Sojitz Corporation has announced it will collaborate with Queensland government-owned utility CS Energy and Nippon Engineering Consultants on a project to transport green hydrogen produced in Australia to the Pacific Island nation of Palau in a bid to reduce a reliance on fossil fuels.

Foton, BOC to collaborate on scaling Australia’s hydrogen bus sector

Vehicle manufacturer Foton and gas company BOC have signed an agreement to develop the hydrogen bus sector in Australia and New Zealand, allowing technology they say is already “widely used” around the world to become affordable in a region where it is still nascent.

‘Ultra low-cost solar’ gets a $40 million R&D boost from ARENA

The Australian Renewable Energy Agency has announced $40 million in research and development funding is up for grabs across two streams. Stream 1 consists of cells and modules, and Stream 2 is focused on balance of system along with operations and maintenance. It is hoped the additional funding will spur Australia’s pioneering solar research to push for the federal government’s “ultra low-cost solar” target of $15/MWh.

Electrolyser tech to produce hydrogen from seawater

With a new start-up and a consortium in the Netherlands, German automotive supplier Schaeffler wants to significantly reduce the costs of green hydrogen.

Storing hydrogen with ‘nano-chocolates’

German scientists have developed a novel hydrogen storage method that relies on nanostructures – tiny nanoparticles made of the precious metal palladium – instead of high pressure and lower temperatures.
