ARENA bares recipients of Australia-Germany hydrogen funding initiative

Australia and Germany committed up to A$50m and EUR50m, respectively.

A total of four projects were named as recipients of conditional funding of up to A$50m and EUR50m under the German-Australian Hydrogen Innovation and Technology Incubator (HyGATE) initiative.

In a statement, the Australian Renewable Energy Agency said the ScaleH2 project led by ATCO Australia and Fraunhofer IST will receive A$0.8m and EUR4.7m, whilst the High-efficiency ‘Capillary-fed’ Electrolyser Pilot Project of Hysata and Fraunhofer IPT will get A$8.98m and EUR5.9m.

The Edify Green Hydrogen Project by Edify Energy and Siemens Energy Global GmbH will get A$20.74m and EUR16.4m, and the Solar Methanol of Vast Solar and Fichtner GmbH will have A$19.48m and EUR 13.2m.

ARENA said the projects were chosen for showing highly innovative technology in the value chain of renewable hydrogen, reducing the cost of hydrogen production, transport, storage and use and supporting its commercial viability.

The projects were also developing a supply chain between the two countries, encouraging cross-country collaboration, and providing price discovery and transparency of the current and projected economics of the technologies.

HyGATE aims to strengthen Australian-German cooperation on cutting the cost of hydrogen production from renewables.
