Hydrogen production, storage and transport are seen as key enabling technologies to allow the transition to a hydrogen economy. However, there remains multiple challenges facing such supply chain development. Technology readiness, technology scale-up and access to low-cost renewable electricity remain significant hurdles; overcoming these will be pivotal in unlocking such a hydrogen economy.
This project will focus on the development of a convenient tool to allow for the evaluation of hydrogen supply chain options predominately in an Australian context. The hydrogen supply chain consists of four key stages; (1) production, (2) storage, (3) transport, and (4) utilisation. Within each of these stages, there are multiple potential technologies, leading to numerous potential supply chain options.
