The ACT Renewable Hydrogen Cluster has 4 Goals
ACT Renewable Hydrogen Cluster
The ACT has a unique opportunity to embrace renewable energy through green hydrogen. This opportunity was recognised in 2020 when the ACT Government announced its focus on hydrogen to meet its target of zero-net emissions by 2045.
Evo Energy, The Smart Energy Council, The ACT Renewables Hub, and The Australian National University have been funded by NERA to establish the ACT Renewable Hydrogen Cluster.
The ACT is already kicking goals with:
Australia’s first public hydrogen refuelling station - the ActewAGL Hydrogen refuelling station.
The Evo Energy Hydrogen Test Lab.
The Australian National University’s world class research association: The Energy Change Institute.
The Smart Energy Council and Hydrogen Australia’s world leading Zero Carbon Certification Scheme.
This is just a taste of what is to come from the ACT’s leadership in renewable hydrogen.
