H2 Cost Comparison

The forecast cost of hydrogen varies, depending on the types of technologies deployed and what type of energy is used in the process. This graph allows the user to compare the levelized cost of hydrogen based on different technology and energy inputs to 2050 including an option to add the original National Hydrogen Roadmap line that goes to 2030.

Data source: CSIRO National H2 Roadmap
Levelised Cost of H2

‘Hydrogen Technology’ is the method that produces the Hydrogen – this can be fossil fuel or renewable electricity potential based.

‘Reference,Year’ is whose data is used to model the levelised cost of hydrogen and when this data was published.

‘Source of Energy Input’ is where the energy to produces the hydrogen comes from and what type – fossil fuels or renewables.

Use the ‘Hydrogen Technology’, ‘Reference, Year’ and ‘Source of Energy Input’ fields to select the various technology methods to compare.

A maximum of 4 lines can be added at one time.

Click on the rectangular elements on the graph to bring up information on the application.

Note: the user can select as many options as possible in the ‘Technology’ and ‘Reference’ boxes which affects the corresponding options in the box to the right of it. However, the user can only select the maximum number of options in the ‘Source’ box. This is the option/box that ultimately affects what is displayed on the graph.
