Global Carbon Capture and Storage Institute Response to the National Hydrogen Strategy Issues Papers
30th July 2019
In July 2019, the Institute lodged a submitted a response to the second consultation stage for the development of Australia’s Hydrogen Strategy.
The Institute welcomes the opportunity to comment on the recent National Hydrogen Strategy Issues Papers. The Institute previously made a submission to the COAG Energy Council Hydrogen Working Group to inform the development of Australia’s National Hydrogen Strategy.
This submission reiterates key conclusions drawn from the Institute’s original submission, many of which appear to not have been appropriately reflected in the Issues Papers. This submission then provides brief comments on a selection of passages from the Issues Papers where the potential contribution of CCS to the production of clean hydrogen in Australia has not been recognised.
