Project summary description:
The emergence of the hydrogen industry with its suite of technologies and applications is advancing at a rapid pace. In 2019 the Energy Council of the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) published the National Hydrogen Strategy the first national level strategy for the development of the clean hydrogen industry in Australia.

Tracking and measuring its market signals that can quantify progress and identifying choke points in the industry’s development is a priority for the government and the hydrogen industry itself in order to give Australia a first mover advantage as an exporting nation. The National Strategy described ‘progress indicator’ areas,  but measuring this progress and knowing whether Australia is on track to become ‘a bulk export superpower’ is a challenge in its own.

In this research, a draft framework for tracking progress across hydrogen applications was developed based on the National Hydrogen Roadmap. The research identified knowledge and research gaps, as well as options for further development of a tracking system and actions to be taken in the short-run and the long-run.
