HySupply. Building the Groundwork for an Australian-German Hydrogen Bridge
Since the end of 2020, within the scope of the project HySupply – German-Australian Feasibility Study of Hydrogen produced from Renewables, acatech and the Federation of German Industries (BDI) have been investigating the possibility of international cooperation between the two countries in the area of green hydrogen. The project is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). The Australian consortium is led by the University of New South Wales (UNSW) and funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFAT). The two parties bring together an exceptional network of academic and business experts to explore the entire value chain from a technical, economic, and legal point of view. These perspectives are comprehensively examined in the six reports and studies which have been published within the scope of the project. Giving an outlook on the near future, the action plan identifies steps that need to be implemented in the next two years by all stakeholders for the hydrogen supply chain to be realised by 2030.
