This final report summarises the outcomes from Milestone 3 of this project. All activities have successfully been completed and planned outcomes for the project achieved.
Australia has immense renewable resources, the efficient harvesting of which will ensure future national energy security and support the development of a substantial export market for renewable energy. According to the Clean Energy Australia 2022 report, almost one third of national energy generation is already derived from renewable sources, and this contribution will only grow in the future. To support these developments and future export of Australian renewables worldwide, electricity storage solutions that enable fast transport and long-term conservation on a terawatt scale are required.Among the options, renewable-powered electrolysis of water producing high-energy-density hydrogen fuel (H2) presents one of the currently most feasible and sustainable solutions to this technological challenge.
