New Delhi: CSIRO will deliver a $5 million research, development and demonstration (RD&D) Hydrogen International Collaboration Program.
The program will strengthen collaboration between Australia and international hydrogen research organisations. It will also build on recent collaborative efforts between the Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources and CSIRO in developing an Australian Hydrogen Researcher Network.
Proposed program activities include:
- supporting researcher exchanges
- developing collaboration tools and events
- sharing research relevant to hydrogen and its derivatives, such as ammonia.
Hydrogen is a key priority under the government’s Technology Investment Roadmap, with an investment of more than $1 billion to support Australia’s clean hydrogen industry.
The Australian Government has also entered into partnerships with Germany, Singapore and Japan to accelerate the development of low emissions technologies, including hydrogen.
