Hydrogen promises to be an important part of the future energy mix, however, it is unlikely to be a silver bullet that single-handedly delivers a net zero future. Exactly what part of the energy mix hydrogen will occupy is at this stage uncertain. What we do know is that some niche applications can economically switch to hydrogen today, whereas other applications will take many years to develop and scale up.
So how can we make the transition more economical? By making the transition in concert with energy productivity improvements that bring immediate and lasting benefits.
To explore how energy productivity can facilitate the transition to hydrogen, we have signed a memorandum of understanding with the Australian Hydrogen Council.
We plan to share information, knowledge and resources. We look forward to working with the Council to embed energy productivity thinking into a hydrogen-powered net zero future.
