The commercial scale hydrogen refuelling depot will support Hyzon’s rapidly growing manufacturing footprint in the region and supply hydrogen to new customers looking to transition to clean energy solutions.

In order to develop the refuelling depot, Hyzon will partner with RACV and ENGV for the design, planning, permitting, and development process with the companies expecting it to be operational by late 2023.
RACV is developing the green energy strategy for Hyzon’s Noble Park site. It is anticipated the green hydrogen refuelling depot will be powered by onsite solar generation installed and operated by RACV Solar, one of Australia’s largest and fastest growing solar energy companies.
Hon. Lily D ’Ambrosio MP, Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change for the Victorian Government, said, “Green hydrogen is a key part of our plan to halve emissions by 2030. We’re creating jobs in new industries as we lead Australia’s clean energy transition.”
John Edgley, Managing Director ANZ for Hyzon Motors, said, “Hydrogen availability for heavy duty vehicle refuelling is the key missing infrastructure link in Australia for the industry, and investments like this one today underpin the creation of local hydrogen communities, essential to build into the promise of the hydrogen economy.
“We are focused on generating new local jobs, new and sustainable local manufacturing facilities, and a fundamental transformation of fuel supply to green and local.”
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?
If you are a member of the CaFCP, be sure to grab your ticket at a discounted rate with a code that can be provided to you by the events team.
