AUSTRALIAN companies, organisations and researchers are involved in hydrogen application research and trials as well as implementation.
Some of these include:
The Australian Antarctic Division, in conjunction with the University of Tasmania’s Institute of Antarctic and Southern Ocean Studies, is looking at reducing fuel costs through wind power generation and increased hydrogen use in Mawson Base operations.
Melbourne-based Ceramic Fuel Cells Limited is developing fuel cells, some planned for a power generation trial within Wood-side’s new Perth head-quarters.
The Australian Bureau of Meteorology, which produces hydrogen for atmospheric monitoring, is replacing the generation systems at Norfolk Island and Townsville with fuel cells.
The CSIRO is conducting several hydrogen technology studies and, with Solar Systems, is using solar thermal power to convert natural gas to a synthetic gas, which contains hydrogen.
