Hydrogen large-scale, demonstration and pilot projects

Industry Projects covers large-scale and demonstration projects in Australia. It includes projects across the full asset life-cycle spectrum – from those in development planning (including where a development study has been completed), to those under construction, to those in operation, and finally completed projects – see Definitions used in classifying a project’s status (or asset life-cycle stage)

HyResource includes 118 hydrogen-related (Industry) projects in Australia. The projects listed cover the full spectrum of main end-use applications, with a focus on hydrogen mobility, hydrogen in gas networks and ammonia production. Project break-up by life-cycle stage is as follows:

  • Operating – 10
  • Under construction – 12
  • Development planning – 86
  • Project completed – 1
  • Study completed – 8
  • One ‘project’ is classified as a National funding program, included due to its size and importance in industry development

A full description of each project can be accessed by clicking on the specific Project Title.

HyResource Projects Map – Reference Notes

The HyResource hydrogen projects map provides a spatial representation of projects across Australia as well as filtering capability by status, main end-use, and main proponents. Users should note the following points:

  • Pin markers (GPS coordinates) reflects a mixture of specific locations confirmed by proponents or general locations consistent with project descriptions.
  • Main end-use options, for ease of use purposes, has been ‘restricted’ to around 10, with options written to keep consistency with the project descriptions.
  • It is possible to do incremental filtering within each filter category (e.g. status) but simultaneous use of multiple filters leads to spurious results.

Industry project activity locations can also be viewed on a map of Australia through Geoscience Australia’s AusH2 tool.
