The Spicers Retreats Scenic Rim Trail Ecotourism Demonstration using Low Pressure Hydrogen project is to provide electricity requirements for five eco-camps using renewables-based hydrogen energy systems. This would replace the need for diesel or LPG powered generators at Spicers Retreats Scenic Rim Trail remote eco-camp sites.
A renewables-based hydrogen generation system is to be installed at the Spicers Canopy eco-camp (located at Spicers Peak Station on the Scenic Rim near Brisbane) and self-contained hydrogen energy systems will be installed at four other remote eco-camps on the Scenic Rim Trail. Two mobile hydride storage units are to be constructed to allow excess produced hydrogen to be used at remote eco-camps during periods of low solar capacity or during maintenance.
Spicers have elected not to proceed with their Scenic Rim hydrogen demonstration project and have withdrawn from their Queensland Hydrogen Industry Development Fund funding agreement.
