Hydrogen heats up in Queensland

Energy Networks Australia has welcomed the Queensland Government’s support for the development of hydrogen as an alternative clean-energy fuel source.

In response to the paper, Advancing Queensland’s hydrogen industry, Energy Networks Australia CEO Andrew Dillon said hydrogen could play an important role as Australia moves to decarbonise gas and electricity and it was pleasing to see the Queensland Government’s interest.

“Hydrogen has enormous potential and on a national level we’ve seen states, energy networks, renewable energy bodies and universities invest millions of dollars into research and development and hydrogen pilot projects,” he said.
