Because of this, the Australian hydrogen market is certainly one gaining major investment and, with hopes to capitalise on this, thyssenkrupp nucera has strategically opened a new office in Perth.

The basis of this development is to expand its already established European presence to Australia and support emerging green hydrogen projects in the country.

But how will this be achieved?

The new facility is planned to have full sales and project execution capabilities and is ideally located to support the company’s growth and projects in the emerging green hydrogen industry in Australia.

This will allow thyssenkrupp to distribute its innovative 10MW standard electrolyser module to produce vast quantities of hydrogen for the domestic market.

However not only could the Australian market benefit from the new office. Its strategic position makes it viable for the company to expand its business in Asia as well helping to grow the Eastern hydrogen industry across multiple nations.

In doing so, gigawatt-scale technology could be provided by thyssenkrupp in the near future.

Dr. Johann Rinnhofer, Managing Director of thyssenkrupp nucera Australia, said, “Western Australia has many attributes that provide a strong competitive advantage in the growing global renewable hydrogen market with their combination of world-class renewable energy resources, vast land mass, established energy infrastructure and a history of exporting energy to international markets.

“After having worked successfully with our Australian customers for many years, this new focus on the hydrogen sphere of Australia with a base in Perth was a logical business decision.

“Minerals, metals and renewable energy are essential ingredients to shape the new era. Australia also proves to be a reliable and stable partner with shared values and existing trade relationships with many countries.

“The world is ready for the energy transition and we are ready to deliver the large-scale technology needed. With its outstanding hybrid wind and solar hydrogen production suitability, Australian sunshine will support many countries in their endeavour to switch to renewable energy.”

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?

Our early bird offer tickets are $1,000, for a limited time only. 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.
