Aussie states are burning up with hydrogen fever and now even cooking with it



The Australian federal and state governments are getting more aggressive on the hydrogen front in a bid to encourage greater private investment in the renewable energy source.

Late last week the WA government announced it would commit $10m to a Renewable Hydrogen Fund as part of its new Renewable Hydrogen Strategy to position Western Australia as a “frontrunner in the burgeoning global renewable hydrogen industry”.

WA regional development minister Alannah MacTiernan said hydrogen was a “major opportunity” for the state, but it wouldn’t happen without significant investment and lead times.

“We need to build our domestic hydrogen market and our skills base, to drive the transition for our existing industries and capitalise on this opportunity for WA’s economy, supporting regional jobs and growth,” she said.

And over in Victoria, construction has just started on a half-billion-dollar pilot hydrogen project that the federal government says has the potential to create $2 billion in exports for Australia.

The Hydrogen Energy Supply Chain project at Port Hastings in Victoria will look at the feasibility of turning brown coal from the Latrobe Valley into hydrogen, which would then be liquefied and exported to Japan.

“Australia is well placed to become a global leader in hydrogen production and this pilot project is a crucial step towards making this vision a reality,” federal resources minister Matt Canavan said at Friday’s “sod turning”.... more: https://stockhead.com.au/energy/35224/

2. I wouldn't say it's propaganda.

However, it's pretty easy to see that isn't a hydrogen flame.
It's so pale and transparent that it's hard to see it with the lights on in that type of circumstance.
OxyHydrogen torches are pretty cool though.
