Project Announcement: Bridging blue and green hydrogen

In this project researchers will establish a base case scenario in which hydrogen is generated with an electrolyser and is co-located with a combined cycle power plant (CCPP) running off natural gas and which acts in a firming capacity – oxygen is emitted in this case. This arrangement will be tested against different levels of…

Project Announcement: Thermophysical Properties of Hydrogen Enriched Natural Gas

This project will focus on the blending hydrogen into natural gas pipeline networks as a means of delivering hydrogen to markets. Mixing hydrogen into natural gas pipelines requires several considerations regarding the compression of this mixture, the use of the mixture as a fuel (for example, in gas turbines), and the impact of pipeline capacity…

Project Announcement: Paths to a sustainable hydrogen supply chain

This project will develop a web-based tool which is convenient and intuitive to use. It will be adaptable to variable user inputs and supply chain component preferences and will output a detailed overview of the dispensed hydrogen total (and component) costs as well as collective technological readiness. Currently such cost estimate forecasting is largely done…

Project Announcement: Enabling large scale hydrogen underground storage in porous media

This project aims to enable the hydrogen underground storage capacity in Australia by developing a framework (a screening tool) for hydrogen underground storage. This screening tool will relate hydrogen-brine-rock interactions, microbial reactions, geology and petrophysical properties and exiting number of wells and materials to caprock sealing and integrity, wellbore integrity, cycling process of hydrogen, hydrogen…
