Hydrogen hubs are regions where various producers, users or exporters of hydrogen are co-located. This lowers infrastructure needs, reduces costs, and supports hydrogen production at scale which helps reduce the price customers will pay for hydrogen.

Central Queensland has been identified as an ideal hydrogen hub location because it has:

  • a skilled workforce and investment environment which supports innovation
  • sufficient land, electricity transmission, gas infrastructure and port capacity to meet international export and local industry demand
  • a state development area that supports the development of industrial hubs, infrastructure corridors and major development sites
  • proximity to the Central Queensland Renewable Energy Zone with strong electricity network infrastructure, and wind and solar resources.

Stanwell is working with government, industry, education providers and the community to create a sustainable hydrogen ecosystem in Central Queensland. This will help the region to become one of the world’s leading hydrogen-fuelled industrial centres and global exporters of hydrogen.
