Innovation and industrial policies for green hydrogen

This paper examines the current development of hydrogen technology in the manufacturing sector and the industrial policies enacted to support it across countries.
Report

Geopolitics of the energy transformation: the hydrogen factor

As countries around the world rally behind net zero targets, hydrogen is increasingly seen as a missing piece of the energy transformation puzzle to decarbonise harder-to-abate sectors. This report considers whether and how hydrogen may disrupt future energy systems, reflecting on many of the key...

Fuelling cooperation: the Indo-Pacific hydrogen transformation

This paper argues that the creation of an integrated Indo-Pacific hydrogen market would transform regional geopolitics, help avoid the worst effects of climate change, and would also sustain greater levels of energy security and regional interdependence.
Discussion paper

A hydrogen Guarantee of Origin scheme for Australia: discussion paper

The establishment of a hydrogen Guarantee of Origin (GO), or certification scheme, is a priority action under Australia’s national hydrogen strategy. This paper outlines methodologies for guaranteeing the origin of clean hydrogen from three main production pathways: electrolysis, coal gasification with carbon capture and storage...

Report

What regions need on the path to net zero emissions

This report finds that regional Australia is undergoing an economic transformation, with historical coal and gas heartlands in pole position to capitalise on the global shift to net zero emissions – with appropriate federal government planning, regulation and investment to manage the eventual decline of...
Working paper

‘Clean’ hydrogen? An analysis of the emissions and costs of fossil fuel based versus renewable electricity based hydrogen

In this working paper, the authors argue that establishing hydrogen supply chains on the basis of fossil fuels, as many national strategies foresee, may be incompatible with decarbonisation objectives and raise the risk of stranded assets.
