Origin Energy and Orica have joined forces to act on the vision that hopes to see green hydrogen produced from sustainably sourced water and renewable electricity.

The transportation industry is set to benefit from the hub, with several heavy vehicle and transport operators, such as Red Bus Services and Aluminium Revolutionary Chassis Company (ARCC), having committed to supporting the project.

Already, Australia has made huge commitments to hydrogen mobility and is continuing to flourish in the market as it looks to pursue a decarbonised future.

Frank Calabria, CEO of Origin Energy, said, “By collaborating with Orica and other partners, we have an invaluable opportunity to further explore how green hydrogen could help to power a cleaner future for manufacturing, transport and industrial customers in Australia.

“Both Origin and Orica are well established in the Hunter region and bring considerable expertise in different aspects of the hydrogen value chain, which will help contribute to the continued development of this emerging industry.

“Reducing emissions from Australia’s manufacturing sector will be key to achieving the nation’s ambition to be net zero emissions by 2050, and this will only be achieved if the energy industry, customers and governments work together to support the development of hydrogen as a future energy source.”

North American Hydrogen Summit

H2 View is taking its events platform to America’s original clean hydrogen hub of California. Together with the California Fuel Cell Partnership (CaFCP), we will stage our North American Hydrogen Summit in San Francisco on July 14-15.

As our summit theme Building Bridges: Hydrogen hubs and investment suggests, the event will explore the $8bn of funding announced to create at least four regional hydrogen hubs in the US. These hubs will turbo-charge the nation’s progress toward heavy trucking and industrial sectors that run without producing carbon pollution – and they may just provide the path forward to a hydrogen-fuelled future.

With California and Texas vying to be America’s hydrogen capital today, where are the hubs of tomorrow? Further still, what can other states, and countries, learn from California’s success story? And how can we build bridges to a successful flow of international investment?
