How to Apply for Funding

Step 1 - Read the program guidelines
  • Funding Round Guidelines

    Last year the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) announced a funding round of up to $70 million to help fast track the development of renewable hydrogen in Australia.

    The Renewable Hydrogen Deployment Funding Round follows the release of the National Hydrogen Strategy in late 2019 and is in line with the Australian Government’s focus on growing an innovative, safe and competitive hydrogen industry in Australia.

    The Renewable Hydrogen Deployment Funding Round – Funding Announcement details the process that will be used by ARENA under the Advancing Renewables Program (ARP). The Renewable Hydrogen Deployment Funding Round is a Competitive Process as defined in the ARP Guidelines, and clauses 4.27 to 4.32 apply. The Funding Announcement should be read in conjunction with the ARP Guidelines (which apply to the Funding Round).

    Please read the materials below before proceeding.
