Hydrogen will play an important role in the energy transition as an energy carrier for Australia and globally. Moreover, Australia also has great opportunities to export hydrogen given its geographical and natural resources’ strengths.
In this context, large-scale hydrogen storage in the subsurface has been proposed in existing salt caverns, depleted oil and gas reservoirs and saline aquifers.
While the expectations of large-scale hydrogen storage in porous media are high, the feasibility and potential risks remain untested and unquantified. These technical and economic uncertainties to manage and predict the large-scale hydrogen storage in porous media need to be addressed. Read more about this project here.
