Hydrogen Industry Mission


[Music plays and an animation image of a spinning world globe appears and satellites can be seen spinning around the world globe and the camera gradually zooms in on the globe}

Narrator: Tackling climate change means we have to work hard to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.

We’ve made huge strides in the use of renewables to produce electricity but some sectors are harder to decarbonise.

This is where hydrogen comes in.

Hydrogen can be used in a variety of industrial and domestic applications. Importantly, whenever it’s used it produces no greenhouse gas emissions.

Australia is perfectly positioned to establish hydrogen export supply chains which presents real opportunities.

It’s estimated that a clean Australian hydrogen industry could create 8,000 new jobs, generate $11 billion in GDP a year, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

So, with a strong global market pool, technological readiness, and an appetite for the potential of hydrogen, we’re at a critical stage.

Challenges remain, however.

Hydrogen is still expensive to produce, relative to current fuels, and using it requires new technology and infrastructure.

CSIRO’s Hydrogen Industry Mission has been created to help focus research and development on solving these challenges to accelerate the development of Australia’s domestic and export hydrogen industries.

With our partners we’re supporting hydrogen knowledge sharing, informing best practice through feasibility studies, demonstrating hydrogen technologies and infrastructure, and delivering practical research, which helps de-risk hydrogen industry investments.

The Mission’s success depends on strong collaboration across industry, research, and government.
