For Australia to adopt hydrogen as a widespread energy carrier, millions of tonnes of storage options will be needed to buffer the fluctuations in supply and demand, both for domestic use and for export. Future Fuels CRC’s latest research maps out the high-level availability of potential sites in Australia and develops a method for selecting suitable storage sites that match hydrogen production needs.
To understand the potential for Australia’s sub-surface to store our future clean energy needs please join our lead researcher Dr Jonathan Ennis-King of CSIRO and an industry panel for this free webinar.
About underground hydrogen storage
Once the scale of storage at a site exceeds tens of tonnes, underground hydrogen storage is the cheapest and safest large-scale storage option for industrial-sized purposes. Although underground hydrogen storage is already used globally to support existing industrial uses of hydrogen, it is highly dependent on the suitability of local rock formations. This research looks beneath Australia’s surface to identify the opportunities under our land and waters.
This research was completed in concert with CSIRO’s Hydrogen Industry Mission.
