Australia: Coalition launches push for hydrogen power in energy policy reboot

Morrison government engages chief scientist to develop roadmap for potential $1.7bn export industry



The Morrison government will on Friday open public consultations on a national hydrogen strategy, after engaging Australia’s chief scientist to develop a roadmap with the cooperation of Canberra and the states.

The Coalition’s move, which is part of a broader climate and energy policy reboot executed this week, follows a commitment from Labor in January to set aside $1bn in funding from the Clean Energy Finance Corporation for clean hydrogen development, and to invest up to $90m from the Australian Renewable Energy Agency for research, demonstration and pre-commercial deployment of hydrogen technologies.

Labor is pointing to hydrogen as a clean fuel of the future, with the potential to gradually replace Australia’s export earnings from coal. But the federal resources minister Matt Canavan has declared the Coalition’s approach to developing the industry “won’t blindly turn our back on coal and the jobs it supports.”

Hydrogen is being promoted as a replacement for natural gas. It is being used overseas in the transport sector and in electricity generation.

Last December, the chief scientist Alan Finkel recommended state and federal energy ministers take three immediate steps to develop the industry. He recommended work to allow up to 10% hydrogen in the domestic gas network, including making the required regulatory changes and implementation of technical standards...more: https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2019/mar/01/coalition-launches-push-for-hydrogen-power-in-energy-policy-reboot

Australia's top scientist calls for hydrogen revolution to replace fossil fuels

10/10/18 Sydney Morning Herald

The federal government’s top scientist Alan Finkel says Australia could slash global carbon emissions and create a multi-billion dollar export industry by developing hydrogen as an everyday energy source to replace fossil fuels used in vehicles, homes and industry...more: https://www.smh.com.au/politics/federal/australia-s-top-scientist-calls-for-hydrogen-revolution-to-replace-fossil-fuels-20181009-p508mj.html





But wait- the Energy Experts at DI say Hydrogen is dumb. So why are Australia, China, Japan and Korea pursuing a dumb idea? Why don't the Brilliant Minds at DI contact the Australian, Chinese, Japanese and Korean governments and tell them they are making huge mistakes? The DI Brain Trust could save these governments billions and billions of dollars - and be recognized as world heros. Chop Chop DI Smarties! Time's a wastin'.

3. Another dump and run -- sad, really sad.

How's that shopping at a Venesuala grocery store? The one that was set up to look full for that Dumbfuk from the Nation. You sure left that story in a hurry. No conviction or did you know it was bullshit to start with? I'm betting on the latter.

4. I won't be responding to the likes of you

Just who do you think you are anyway?



I don't care what you think about hydrogen, my posts, oil, energy, the 2020 election, Venezuela or anything else.

Capice?

Now Pound Sand. Hard.

5. Awww!!

Did my post ruffle your pink Pussy hat or that cute little Antifa mask? Let those emotion flow darling -- that's all that you Lefty's have anymore (emotions, crying, blubbering, group think and victim hood). It's really pathetic and I'll pray for your enlightenment.

6. Don't take it personally Coke

Aquila treats everybody that way. Its just his personality. Some people are just smarter than the rest of us I guess and we all deserve a beat-down on occasion to put us in our place. Aquila is always there to provide it for us. I just wish he would tell us how his hydrogen-powered car is doing, which we all figure he must have one since they are the best thing since sliced bread.

7. I don't take anything personally/seriously from his/her ilk.

It's a lot like Strange Luck. It just dumps a load and then never sticks around to discuss/defend what it posts.

I'll bet it drives a late/mid 70's Pinto ( I had a 78 Pinto -- fun car to trash) and can't even afford gas for that. I can't imagine it would ever be in position, without more free .GOV handouts, to partake in the Hydrogen revolution so it's doing no more than blowing smoke. It's like a certain poser at the DUmp that bragged about being a cattle/horse rancher but when she posed here (between multiple bottles of Ripple) she was screeching about CO2 and methane emissions.

Thanks for the response and I hope you have a great weekend.
