Stanwell joins the Australian Hydrogen Council

5 March 2020

Stanwell joins the Australian Hydrogen Council as part of its commitment to supporting the growth of hydrogen markets, both domestically and via international export.

Stanwell’s General Manager Commercial Strategy Delivery, Richard Jeffery said Stanwell was committed to progressing the development of a large-scale, low emissions, hydrogen export industry in Central Queensland.

“We are proud to support the development of a world-leading hydrogen industry in Australia,” Mr Jeffery said.

“Collaboration between government, industry and our communities is key to establishing a hydrogen industry right here on our doorstep, and the Australian Hydrogen Council plays an active role in fostering that collaboration.”

Australian Hydrogen Council CEO, Dr Fiona Simon said AHC members are at the forefront of Australia’s hydrogen industry, developing the technology, skills and partnerships necessary to build Australia’s hydrogen economy.

“The Australian Hydrogen Council connects the hydrogen industry and its stakeholders across the entire hydrogen value chain to develop the partnerships and skills necessary to grow Australia’s hydrogen economy. We believe Stanwell have a special contribution to make and look forward to working with them in the future,” Dr Simon said.

Mr Jeffery said Stanwell’s hydrogen project has a role to play in developing the hydrogen industry.

“We see Stanwell playing a role in positioning Central Queensland as a major hydrogen export hub, creating load growth, and enabling long term business growth and revenue diversification for Stanwell,” Mr Jeffery said.

Stanwell is conducting a feasibility study into a carbon-neutral, 10MW or larger, hydrogen electrolysis plant at Stanwell Power Station. The project will support the development of a hydrogen industry within Queensland with the long-term objective of increasing system energy demand.

Stanwell is excited to be involved in driving innovation in the hydrogen industry from a commercial and technical perspective whilst driving down the levelised cost of hydrogen.
