Australia and Germany ink deal to boost renewable hydrogen production

February 2, 2023 |

In the UK, Innovation News Network reported that Australia and Germany are increasing research into renewable hydrogen production through a joint $100 million funding deal. The deal, which is part of the German-Australian Hydrogen Innovation and Technology Incubator – HyGATE, will include funding for four joint projects. One of the green hydrogen projects, the EGH2 project, will be delivered under a partnership between Edify Energy and Siemens Energy and is set to be developed in Townsville, north Queensland. Under this project, EGH2 will deploy a 17.5 MW Siemens Energy electrolyser with 21 MW solar PV to facilitate renewable hydrogen production. The project is the first stage of the planned 1 GW green hydrogen production that will export hydrogen globally through the Port of Townsville, according to the report. John Cole, CEO of Edify Energy, said: “Australia’s place on the world stage as a leading provider of green hydrogen is taking shape and we look forward to doing what we do best – delivering the economic, environmental, and social benefits of green hydrogen to communities of Northern Queensland and the world.”
