Australia is accelerating development and commercialisation of low emission technologies,
Technology Investment Roadmap and
National Hydrogen Strategy provide the pathway.
Underpinning our clean hydrogen future will be a Guarantee of Origin scheme that is currently in a global design process. The scheme will enable Australian businesses to sell verified low emissions hydrogen from renewable sources and fossil fuels with substantial carbon capture and storage, domestically and to the world.
A Guarantee of Origin scheme will measure and display key attributes of how and where a unit of hydrogen is produced including its carbon intensity. This allows customers in the future to choose the product best suited to their needs.
We are undertaking a process of
trials to inform the development of a Guarantee of Origin scheme.
Australia is playing a leading role internationally, represented by the Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources, in developing methods with our trading partners to determine emissions associated with hydrogen production. This will ensure Australia’s hydrogen Guarantee of Origin framework will be robust, globally recognised and supported by our markets. Over time the Guarantee of Origin scheme could be expanded to cover other low emission products
