In doing so, the WA Government believes that the creation of such a target will help drive local demand and assist emerging hydrogen production projects which are recognised as essential to developing the hydrogen industry.

The proposed legislation would set targets for retailers in the South West Interconnected System to procure a certain percentage of electricity fuelled by renewable hydrogen.

This would create a local market which would support emerging hydrogen projects and improve grid stability.

The design work, being conducted by Energy Policy WA, is expected to be finalised in late 2022 with the integration of the target slated for 2024.

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.
