Enabling large-scale hydrogen underground storage in porous media

Hydrogen value chain has been confirmed as an important new energy industry to balance the clean energy demand and supply. However, the volumetric inferior calorific value in kWh/Nm3 of hydrogen is the lowest (2.8 kWh/Nm3) compared with other fuels although the mass energy density is the highest (33.3 kWh/kg). Therefore, cost-effective, scalable, large-scale, and safe…

Underground Hydrogen Storage Workshop Report

Australia is making progress towards becoming a renewable energy superpower, which not only enables the opportunity to decarbonise the economy, but also increases clean energy exports which will also contribute to regional and global decarbonisation efforts. However, most renewable energy sources are intermittent and not always available when needed. For example, the sun is not…

Public Acceptance of Hydrogen Workshop Summary Report

Energy literacy and public perception will be key attributes for a smoother energy transition over the next 5-10 years. As the energy mix changes with new and improved technologies adopted, and new energy sources introduced, there is bound to be uncertainty in the minds of some. Public engagement and benefit sharing are all on the…

Development and testing of boil-off gas software package for LNG and LH2

This report is the deliverable for Milestones 1.3.1 and 2.2.1 of the FEnEx CRC’s Commonwealth Grant Agreement. The generation of boil‐off gas (BOG) is an unavoidable result of the cryogenic storage of liquefied natural gas (LNG) or liquid hydrogen (LH2) due to heat ingress into the storage tanks. Quantifying the amount of BOG that will…
