Hydrogen Map

The HyResource hydrogen projects map provides a spatial representation of projects across Australia as well as filtering capability by status, main end use, and main proponents.
The map has been accelerated into publication following Users requests (as project numbers rise above 100) and is undergoing final QA/QC processes. These are expected to be completed in July 2022. While QA/QC processes are ongoing, the map information may lag updates to the HyResource projects listing.
Users should be aware of the following points:
• Pin markers (GPS coordinates) reflects a mixture of specific locations confirmed by proponents, general locations confirmed or endorsed by proponents, or general locations consistent with project descriptions (and where a proponent confirmation has been sought/is being sought)
• Numbers in the Pin markers refer to the number of projects reflected by that marker; where there is no number in the Pin marker, this refers to a single project in that spatial area
• Filter options allow for the sorting projects by their status, main end use, and main proponents
• Many projects have multiple end uses of various types. Many projects end-use options are under evaluation and are yet to be advised. Many other projects have single end-uses planned: this makes end-use filtering a very difficult proposition. To keep this manageable, the number of main end use options has been restricted to around 10, with the options written in a way that tries to keep consistency with the project descriptions.
• It is possible to do incremental filtering within each filter category (e.g. status) but not using multiple filters at the same (e.g. status plus main end use)
