Project summary description:
The International Energy Agency (IEA) Hydrogen Technology Collaboration Programme (TCP) is a global collaboration for research and innovation in hydrogen technology. The Hydrogen TCP has representatives from 21 countries, 3 companies, an international association, UNIDO and the European Commission, who meet twice a year. The strategy is to facilitate, coordinate and maintain innovative research, development and demonstration activities through international cooperation and information exchange. By accelerating hydrogen implementation and widespread utilisation, the proposed outcome is a hydrogen future based on a clean sustainable energy supply that plays a key role in all sectors of the economy.

The purpose of the funding is to fund Australia’s membership in the IEA Hydrogen TCP and the participation of the Executive Committee (ExCo) member to attend the bi-annual IEA Hydrogen TCP ExCo meetings, as well as to partly fund the attendance for Australian experts to attend the Task meetings. Further funding is for knowledge sharing and the costs of setting up two new Hydrogen Tasks led by Australia.
