As Australia commits to a hydrogen future, HIL provides the long term policy released by the government.
In the ministerial foreword, The Hon Angus Taylor MP Minister for Energy and Emissions Reduction explained:
“As the Commonwealth Ministers representing Australia’s energy and resources sectors, we are pleased to present Australia’s National Hydrogen Strategy.”
“Technological developments that support energy affordability, improve energy system reliability and contribute to long-term emissions reductions will be vital as global energy markets continue to evolve. Hydrogen is one of the many tools that can help us on this evolution and Australia is in a unique position to maximise on this opportunity.”
“The development of our hydrogen resources could enhance Australia’s energy security, create Australian jobs and build an export industry valued in the billions. We have all the pieces needed to create this new industry and supply clean hydrogen to the world: the energy resources, expertise, and infrastructure.”
“This Strategy sets a path to build Australia’s hydrogen industry. We plan to accelerate the commercialisation of hydrogen, reduce technical uncertainties and build up our domestic supply chains and production capabilities. The Strategy looks to initially concentrate hydrogen use in niche hubs that will foster domestic demand. A strong domestic hydrogen sector will underpin Australia’s exporting capabilities, allowing us to become a leading global hydrogen player.”
