Advancing Hydrogen: Learning from 19 Plans to Advance Hydrogen from Across the Globe


Hydrogen, as the International Energy Agency (IEA 2019) notes, has experienced a number of ‘false dawns’ - in the 1970s, 1990s and early 2000s - which subsequently faded. However, this time there is reason to think that hydrogen will play a substantial role in the global energy system. The most important factor driving this renewed focus is the ability of hydrogen to support deep carbon abatement by assisting in those sectors where abatement with non-carbon electricity has so far proven difficult. Hydrogen can also address poor urban air quality, energy security, and provides a good means of shifting energy supply between regions and between seasons.
In response to these changed conditions many countries, states and even cities have developed hydrogen strategies while various interest groups have developed industry roadmaps which fulfil a similar role.  
This report summarises 19 hydrogen strategies and aims to help readers understand how nations, regions and industries are thinking about opportunities to become involved in this emerging industry. Its prime purpose is to act as a resource to assist those involved in long-term energy policy planning in Australia including those involved in the development of Australia’s hydrogen strategy
