Assessments of hydrogen project viability typically focus on evaluating individual sites, or providing generic cost-estimates that are independent of location. In reality, hydrogen project success is intimately linked to the availability of local energy resources, access to key infrastructure and water supplies, and the distance to export ports and energy markets. The Hydrogen Economic Fairways Tool (HEFT) incorporates assessments of these regional factors to identify areas of high economic potential for hydrogen production – the so-called “Economic Fairways” for such projects. The results of this analysis highlight available opportunities for hydrogen development and their infrastructure requirements. HEFT accounts for hydrogen production from renewable (wind and solar) sources, as well as non-renewable sources (steam-methane reformation and coal gasification) combined with carbon capture and storage. In addition, several new capabilities have been added to the HEFT, including break-even price analysis and choice of different export products (i.e. liquid hydrogen or ammonia).
HyCapability (National Energy Resources Australia)
HyCapability is Australia’s first hydrogen capability finder — a free, online, searchable platform that connects Australian hydrogen businesses with a domestic and global market. Developed by National Energy Resources Australia (NERA) and the Hydrogen Technology Cluster Australia (H2TCA) network, and created with the assistance of EconomX, the platform maps regional hydrogen ecosystems and supply chain capacity, making it easier to identify businesses along the hydrogen value chain that have innovative technology, service and equipment offerings for the hydrogen industry.
