Major Platform Release – NERA Launches HyCapability

August 25th, 2021

NERA launches HyCapability, Australia's first hydrogen capability finder.

In August 2021, NERA (National Energy Resources Australia) launched HyCapability, Australia’s first hydrogen capability finder — a free, online, searchable platform capable of sharing the capacities, capabilities and experiences of Australia’s hydrogen equipment, technology and services industry to domestic and global markets.

The platform has four main objectives:

  1. Supporting the growth of the hydrogen industry across the whole value chain
  2. Increasing the promotion of Australian hydrogen-related businesses to domestic and international markets
  3. Creating a baseline understanding of the Australian hydrogen industry
  4. Increasing momentum and creating connections for the Hydrogen Technology Cluster Australia (H2TCA) network.

The HyCapability platform has been developed in collaboration with the H2TCA network. The network aims to accelerate hydrogen supply chain development by enabling industry connection, collaboration, and alignment of action across Australia (as well as reducing duplication and identifying gaps in the development, deployment, and commercialisation of hydrogen-focussed technologies).

Guidance notes to how to register and create a hydrogen business profile on the platform can be found on the HyCapability webpage.
