A lack of commitment from the Australian Government to develop regulation & standards for renewable hydrogen, despite burgeoning domestic & international demand, has resulted in an industry-led scheme stepping up.
Hydrogen Australia launched its Zero Carbon Certification Scheme in December 2020. It is a Guarantee of Origin style scheme which promotes the uptake and distribution of renewable hydrogen products and their derivatives in Australia and overseas.
“The opportunity for renewable hydrogen is a much talked about topic in Australia – it is not a secret that Australia boasts some of the best wind and solar resources in the world, and further, has the available land to harness these resources on a massive scale. The 26GW Asian Renewable Energy Hub and the 3GW SunCable projects both stand as a testament to the bright ‘green’ future that Australia can unlock given enough ambition.”
