A-Lab takes steps towards green hydrogen economy

More than fifty hydrogen industry experts gathered in Brisbane last week to develop ideas to help fast track an Australian hydrogen economy.

ARENA convened the A-Lab Accelerate innovation workshop to start laying the groundwork to develop a shortlist of potential renewable hydrogen projects.

Over two days, industry experts from the electricity, gas, transport sectors and beyond brainstormed a list of opportunities for ARENA funding in renewable hydrogen, including:

A 10 MW+ electrolysis project to produce renewable hydrogen using electricity
A green steel feasibility study and demonstration project
A large scale power-to-gas grid injection project
A utility scale demonstration project for the production of green ammonia
Hydrogen Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV) bus and passenger vehicle fleets
A remote and off grid area power project that would include hydrogen storage
Hydrogen FCEV mining trucks
Renewable methane production

Among these ideas, participants also suggested exploring the opportunity to power an off-grid mine with hydrogen, develop infrastructure for hydrogen exports and examine potential for green fertiliser.

Discussion focused on more than just the technical and commercial challenges associated with scaling up a hydrogen economy. Participants were conscious of the need to ensure there is robust community engagement and a social license to operate, alongside governance and regulatory frameworks that support the growth of the hydrogen industry. Education, training and providing opportunities to upskill the workforce of the future were identified as critical... more: https://arena.gov.au/blog/hydrogen-a-lab/

2. It will never be anything but a niche power source

3. Cannabis will never be legal

Satellite dishes will never be the same size as a pizza dish

Solar will never provide any meaningful amount of power

Wind will never provide any meaningful amount of power

Cellular phones will never fit in your pocket




Some anon, credential-less poster on the net says "H2 will never be anything but a niche power source" - and probably expects to be believed!

4. All those things you mentioned (except the wind power) are wanted by the people

and don't have to be forced on us by the govt, its called supply and demand.. As to wind power let me know when countries other than Ireland (or other small countries) actually use majority wind power. I still don't think a very explosive gas is going to be the wave of the future
