Hydrogen Society of Australia-HSA, Australia’s biggest green hydrogen plant
The Australian Association for Hydrogen Energy came into being or was established , for the welfare and benefit of the Australian people, and to attain advancement in the quality of knowledge and understanding of various processes like production, transport, safety, storage, distribution and the final usage of hydrogen energy.
Hydrogen Society of Australia that is HSA is primarily dedicated to in order to promote significance of hydrogen(renewable form of energy) as a clean fuel and an effective energy storage solution, increasing the visibility as well as the use of hydrogen, it's compiling and the informations of the disseminating hydrogen industry , fostering the corporations and collaboration between stakeholders, discussing and developing effective strategic policies and implementing certain initiatives to positively influence the political fields, and engaging all levels of government, and scientists, academics, common people as well as business community, organising a varied spectrum l of hydrogen related events and projects.
The HSA -the Hydrogen Society of Australia was launched in January in the year 2018 by the representatives of basically Innovate Australia, Woodside and Siemens.
Founding members of this prestigious national association are:
Brian Haggerty of the Woodside Energy.
Andrew McCluskey is the Regional Manager of the Western Australia for the Siemens
It is commented by Acting President of the HSA and CEO of Innovate Australia, Peter Kasprzak Australia has myriad of unique qualities that creates it an ideal candidate to be in the status of a ‘Hydrogen Society’, which will follow the leading countries such as China, Japan, Korea, and the EU nations who realised the value and worth of hydrogen as a clean, and sustainable energy carrier he's also added that The remote communities of Australia, with distributed energy networks, and there arises the necessity for a long-distance transport and haulage, which means that this is a country that can benefit the most from the large-scale adoption and usage of hydrogen as a fuel and energy backbone. Brian Haggerty, the Vice President of Innovation Capability at Woodside told that as the world enters the Fourth IR- Industrial Revolution, and the role of hydrogen as a cost-effective as well as a safe zero-emission energy source which is at the very forefront of transformative planning.”
The association HSA is currently working on the areas that includes the Hydrogen Highway or the Zero Emission Highway and also the Zero Emission Directory
Hydrogen Port Project are certain projects that currently HSA is in discussion with CSIRO regarding its potential involvement in the development of these projects.
This Hydrogen Highway/Zero Emission Highway will focus fundamentally on heavy transport, that will eventually help to introduce the zero-emission transport, with lower cost of fuel, and also leads to the achievement of a secure fuel supply, eliminating the complete need for importing diesel as we are self sufficient.
Another major fact about HSA is that the Hydrogen Society of Australia is proud to be a Supporting Partner of the 2nd Australian Hydrogen Forum of the year ,2020.
Hydrogen Fuel Cells will Supplement DERs- Distributed Energy Resource which is a revolution.
Plus the growing recognition of the value of this DER model, and it's positive impacts and environmental upgrades, improving the potential of the hydrogen fuel cell energy for backup power and also stabilization offers huge value in the current energy market during this Pandemic.
Another national association that promotes the usage of hydrogen as an energy carrier, is The AAHE . Its cooperation and integration in the Australian energy economy,their contribution in the development and deployment of hydrogen energy technologies, such as fuel cells.
Anyone can be a part of these national teams in order to promote and maintain a sustainable resource mechanism for posterity. It's an easy process for anyone from any parts of the globe to become a member , just by filling a form.
Western Australia has attained a significant position that is to become the home of Australia’s biggest green hydrogen plant that too after an initial $300 million investment was secured for its very first phase of construction. The project is being introduced and developed by Perth-based Infinite Blue Energy, which is basically aiming to have the plant operation by the year 2022.
The very earliest one of many green hydrogen projects across Western Australia that was being developed by Perth-based company Infinite Blue Energy is The Arrowsmith Hydrogen plant .
This company the Infinite Blue Energy has been establishing and strengthening new partnerships with the leading Australian and international companies, technology suppliers, and green hydrogen buyers all around the globe in the midst of Australia’s ambitions to become a global leader in the production as well as the export of hydrogen which is produced by renewable energy-powered electrolysis.
Covid-19 has completely altered and subverted the operational outlook for so many businesses across the world everywhere and what leads today’s market is a equally, uniquely competitive and innovative offering than ever before.
In the foreseeable future that is by the upcoming 2030, to be precise , the IEA -The International Energy Agency is anticipating that it will be possible to make a clean power for less than USD 0,02 per KWh there. In conjunction to that the region boasts a plentiful water supply– the raw material for the process and mechanism of electrolysis, which is the process whereby it is split into its components, they are oxygen and hydrogen. Also there is no shortage of space for both wind and solar farms. As a matter of fact the Inner Mongolia is very scantily populated, so there are most unlikely to occur any issues with minimum distance rules.
China is conspicuously on among the world’s leading hydrogen producers, but the gas has been primarily used mainly by the petrochemical industry, and is clearly obtained by the recourse to coal gasification. Even though the country does not have a comprehensive hydrogen strategy, according to the reports of the German development agency GIZ, which represents several other German ministries. However, the National Energy Administration that is NEA ,is already working on a first draft, while as reported by the trade journal China Market Insider, at this year’s National People’s Congress support is most importantly for the hydrogen industry and fuel cell production which was codified in the current Development Plan for the very first time.
