Australian hydrogen network
National Energy Resources Australia (NERA) recently launched 13 regional clusters across Australia to form a national network for Australian hydrogen technology, expertise and innovation.
NERA is investing AU$1.85 million to establish the clusters across all states and territories that will facilitate the development of new capability in hydrogen focused technologies for Australia.
The development of a national hydrogen cluster was identified by the COAG Energy Council’s 2019 National Hydrogen Strategy as an important component to scale up Australia’s domestic industry to become a global hydrogen competitor.
