A hydrogen Guarantee of Origin scheme for Australia: discussion paper

Hydrogen energy Renewable energy Energy industries Australia

Australia’s national hydrogen strategy sets a vision for a clean, innovative, safe and competitive hydrogen industry that benefits all Australians. It aims to position the industry as a major global player by 2030.

An early priority action item in the strategy is to develop a certification scheme to measure and track the emissions associated with hydrogen production.

The department has developed a proposed approach to a Guarantee of Origin scheme for hydrogen in Australia. This draws on domestic stakeholder consultation in 2020 and ongoing work through the International Partnership for Hydrogen and Fuel Cells in the Economy.

This discussion paper has been released to gather industry input to inform the design of the scheme.

Submissions close Friday 30 July 2021.
