The Australian Government’s Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources invests in areas of competitive strength or emerging priority technology capabilities (such as hydrogen), and supports the provision of reliable, secure and affordable energy.
In September 2021, the Department identified seven prospective hydrogen hub locations across Australia, including: Bell Bay (TAS), Darwin (NT), Eyre Peninsula (SA), Gladstone (QLD), Latrobe Valley (VIC), Hunter Valley (NSW), and Pilbara (WA).
We encourage the Australian Government to work with state and territory governments, port owners and energy providers to identify and coordinate enabling interventions (policy and infrastructure) that respond to this opportunity, including the most suitable locations for investment. Infrastructure Australia will assess submission that propose infrastructure options for each site, rather than whether these locations are in the right place.
